Only a private one will arrive on time for a lot of money ... I do not rely on ambulances for a long time. If anything - go to the car and to the hospital quickly. You need to have friends in the nearest.
Should arrive as soon as possible. In my opinion, this is up to 20 minutes. Ideally, every normal clinic has many substations. As, for example, in the GMS clinic, it is equipped according to the first word of medicine in terms of technology and arrives on time and the costs are not very high.
An ambulance team must arrive before 20 minutes, while the transport situation is not taken into account in any way, and no one at all cares how this standard should be met. In Moscow and the Moscow region, ambulances arrive very quickly for accidents and emergencies - 5-7 minutes.
The rest is left to the discretion of local authorities, because the ambulance service in Russia is not a federal service, but a “shtetl” one. Therefore, there are different approaches to business everywhere. In a big city, everything is close by, and in some regions you have to travel 40 km. Everything here affects the speed of arrival - salaries, the quality of roads, the number of teams.
Ambulances usually do not have time for emergency calls due to the abundance of false calls. "Something is wrong with me" - you need to calmly pack up and go to the doctor in the clinic, otherwise there will not be enough teams for all the teams. Sorry, I have to go to the same address three times to tell my mother that her child needs to call a doctor, which is why we are late. An ambulance is an emergency service, then we will get there and go on the opposite lane.
The rates for the arrival of an ambulance depend on what they contacted the control room with. The dispatcher will be the first to assess the "urgency" of the call. And if the state does not threaten with death in the near future, then a linear ambulance will be sent, which can go for an hour or an hour and a half, and there is nothing to worry about. You don't die.
But if the case is urgent, then an emergency team leaves and there are norms. In general, the localization of the substation is such that theoretically you can reach the most remote places of the district in 20 minutes. In practice, there are traffic jams. There are times when the flashing light will not help. This is our contemporary autoreality. Health to you.
As amended on 07/01/16, the time of arrival to the patient of the ambulance team - when providing emergency assistance should not exceed 20 minutes from the moment of the call. In the previous edition, there was a point only on the territorial planning of substations, which should be created taking into account 20-minute transport accessibility.
