In exceptional circumstances the triage nurse may decide to dispatch a Mobile Response Unit to your location.
Once your details are sent to the mobile response unit, the driver may contact you in advance to ask for directions to your location and may give you an approximate time of arrival. If you have your current GPS coordinates or postcode this may also assist the driver in finding your location quickly.
If you have a vehicle near your location, it is helpful to turn on the hazard warning lights or leave the outside lights of your house on. Please remember to confine any dangerous animals on the property, such as guard dogs.
