Owen McLauchlan

33-year-old Mandy Mathieson after she collapsed with a heart attack 800 yards from where this cunt was sitting in his depot in the Highland village of Tomintoul having a tea break.

Owen McLauchlan was angrily condemned by his own crewmate who only became aware of a situation when she heard an air ambulance overhead whilst at home. She phoned McLauchlan to ask what was happening, he told her: "Shirley, you're not going to like what I'm about to say. They shouted me on my break but I refused to go."

Sickened Shirley, said: "I was totally numb with disbelief. I just hung up. We may not have been able to make a difference to Mandy but we were only two minutes away."

An ambulance was dispatched from 15 miles away and an air ambulance was also despatched while this jobsworth bastard sat drinking his tea. And to make things worse, after being suspended the NHS has decided that he can keep his job!!

Just pray you don't live on his patch!

Well done, Nick. The bloke is a bloody disgrace!

Well, hold on a minute here!

Is the man not entitled to a break? Surely if there's blame, it lies with the understaffing that doesn't allow adequate cover for his patch in the event of rest breaks?

This guy was a trainee and unsupervised at the time of this incident. He was not competent to use ambulance equipement unsupervised at the time of this call. And he was on a break.

The disgrace here is with the ambulance service having poor staffing levels in the area. Not this the poor trainee who was put in this position in the first place.

This news story is utter tosh! Owen is a trainee Technician i.e. an ambulance driver not a PARAMEDIC! Owen was on his own and can only work when supervised. Yes he was on a break but he knew nothing of the incident. This phone call being referred to is phoney cos someone in the wrong is trying to cover their tracks...
