Seen outside a shop in the Covent Garden area where ambulances would be slow to negotiate the narrow streets.
The London Ambulance Service Bicycle Response Unit was set up in 2002 in central London to reduce emergency medical response times to patients in pedestrianised areas. The bicycle-ambulance medics, after assessing the patientís condition, may be able to cancel the ambulance dispatched with them in cases where it is not needed so ambulance crews are freed immediately to attend to more seriously ill or injured patients.
After a few minutes the medic emerged from the shop and rode off so presumably no further attention was required here.
