During her recent hospital stay, Dame Anne was honoured to be the first patient to use the ambulance on it’s the maiden voyage and she said: “The dedicated ambulance for Woodend has already made a huge difference for the transporting of patients around the Woodend site and up to ARI. It has certainly cut out delays in getting patients from their ward to other departments.”
