Govt. ensures public of emergency medical service via hotline 1669

Minister of Public Health M.D.Piyasakol Sakolsattayathon has confirmed the 1669 medical emergency hotline is ready to provide emergency medical service for people across the country.

The minister on Sunday said the 1669 hotline had service units across the country with emergency transport by land, air and water without fee. The hotline’s adviser would offer basic first-aid instructions, ask the caller questions to assess the symptoms and direct the patient to a proper hospital, said the minister.

M.D.Piyasakol also called on motorists to give way to an ambulance so that the patient would receive treatments in time.

The hotline has provided service for 1.36 million times a year over the past three years with a tendency to increase. It has helped decrease injuries from accidents by 200,000 people a year.
