I hate to write this post, but I need advice.
After getting drunk and fighting with my mum, my stepdad told us he'd "taken at least 30 paracetamol." We rang an ambulance as he seemed to become disoriented and told them he'd taken approx 30, the operator said the usual "Don't leave him alone, make sure he doesn't try and throw up, if he gets worse call us straight back." Anyways, we rang 999 using his phone, and a little while afterwards he snatched it back and barricaded himself in the bedroom.
During this time he used his phone to ring a friend, although the operator said not to ring anyone else using the phone. Will this mean they're unable to call us back? Also, if my stepdad rang 999 and said to cancel the ambulance and that he didn't need one, would they cancel it? I only ask as he's hinted that he has in fact done this.
We rang them at least an hour and a half ago, how long should it take for an ambulance to arrive?
Any help would be appreciated, sorry if this post doesn't make much sense I'm trying to type as fast as possible and post this question.
