... and just what are you going to bill her for?

To be honest I don't view this any differently to the person who drinks to excess, falls over in the street and injures themself. They should certainly be charged for the transport and for the treatment.

Well, in this case nothing, as the ambulance didn't go to her, but ambulances will normally charge for RTA collections, and presumably have the means to charge for anything else, should they wish. Last case I heard of was GBP60, so it'd be a bloody expensive taxi!
