The NHS faces an ambulance staffing crisis because numbers of workers quitting have almost doubled, experts warn.

Thousands more ambulance staff and paramedics plan to leave imminently, with poor working conditions and low pay blamed for the mass exodus.

The Unison, Unite and GMB unions were calling on the Government to review salaries or face the “catastrophe” of strike action.

In 12 months over 2010/11 a total of 845 ambulance staff quit, say NHS figures obtained by the three unions. In 2014/15 that had soared to 1,545.
