Kent v Griffiths [2000]


  •  The claimant had an ambulance called upon suffering an athsma attack
  • The ambulance did not arrive for 40 minutes, by which time the claimant had suffered respiratory arrest


  •  Was the ambulance service liable for being unjustifiably slow in responding


  •  Yes, claim allowed


  • Despite conflicting priorities, it was foreseeable that unjustified delay would foreseeably suffer further injury following the acceptance of responsibility by the service
  • If justification had occurred in good time, the claimant could have been driven to hospital
