Who was Peter Coates? Wiki, Bio, Age, Family, Died after Ambulance Delays


Peter Coates Wiki – Peter Coates Biography

Peter Coates, 62, died after ambulance crews took 36 minutes instead of 97 seconds to reach his home in Redcar. According to leaked documents, An ambulance crew allegedly arrived too late to save a dying patient after they “stopped for a sandwich” while responding to a 999 call. The team was called in as backup because the original vehicle that was supposed to assist was stuck behind the gates of the ambulance station less than two minutes from the affected home of Peter Coates due to a power outage. That same power cut meant that the vital machine supplying oxygen to the 62-year-old man who suffered from a chronic lung condition stopped working and he called 999 for help. When paramedics arrived at his bedside 36 minutes later, he was dead. The incident occurred in March 2019 and his case appeared in a whistleblower’s allegations last year that the North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) had covered up mistakes by paramedics.

His family discovered the alleged reasons for the delays and that the second ambulance team stopped to refuel on the way. But documents recently sent to Coates’ daughter, Kellie, claim that an internal review of the case, known as a SEACARE meeting, heard that the crew stopped at a gas station to buy a sandwich en route. The crew said they stopped to refuel their ambulance, despite the fact that it was half full at the time and there is a petrol pump at its base, it is alleged. However, according to the information provided by the whistleblower, an internal memo states: ‘SEACARE mentioned that the crew went for a sandwich at the beginning of the discussion of this case. Concerns than the need for manufactured fuel. The crew was in and out of the garage in five minutes, wasn’t that enough to refuel? Evidence of having filled out the receipt should be sought to trust the garage that day.’ However, NEAS insists that nothing in its investigation found that the crew had stopped for food.

Outrage after whistleblower claims paramedics ‘stopped for sandwiches’ on their way to 999 call

Former steelworker Mr Coates, a father of five and grandfather from Redcar, North Yorkshire, was in remission from lung cancer but suffered from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and was dependent on a constant supply of oxygen. Daughter Kellie Coates, 47, said: “I couldn’t believe what she was seeing, the claims made by the whistleblower that a crew would stop for food on their way to a dying man.” “She was made worse by the fact that an ambulance with an estimated time of arrival of one minute and 37 seconds at dad’s house was trapped behind electric gates, unable to operate the manual override.” ‘There was a further delay when they got to my father’s house to find the key safe, they said they couldn’t see it behind a drainpipe. “And when they finally got to him, it was too late, he was gone and we were left to cope with that loss with so many questions about what happened.” The family believes that a full investigation into his death should now be conducted.

NEAS said the crew stopped to refuel and not to buy a sandwich. “There was nothing in our investigation to indicate that the crew stopped to buy a sandwich and this was shared with the family in response to questions we had been asked,” a spokesperson said. Mr. Coates’ case was one of five examined in an independent review of NEAS failures. Dame Marianne Griffith’s review found that Coates may not have died had the ambulance arrived sooner. More generally, the review found “leadership dysfunction” and “antagonism” among leadership teams. Staff were “afraid to speak up” and those who raised concerns were left “anxious, frustrated and stressed,” she said. NEAS chief executive Helen Ray said she had written to the families involved to apologize and invited them to meet in person, adding that the 15 recommendations were “acting on pace.” ‘There were failures in our processes and these have now been addressed or are being resolved. We are grateful that the report recognizes that we have a new leadership team committed to addressing the issues,” said Ms. Ray.
