Your choice of ambulance music

    "Patients in the Danish capital will soon be taken to hospital to the sound of soothing music.

    Authorities in Copenhagen's Capital Region have invested in 79 ambulances which offer "a better and safer experience" including a choice of music or nature sounds, the Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR) reports. The roll-out follows a successful trial in the North Jutland region with 17 vehicles which cost one million kroner ($145,000; £102,000) each, where some 70% of patients said they enjoyed the new experience, the Copenhagen Post says"

    How about that then? The ambulance will turn up to scrape you off the road and the first thing they'll ask when they've got you om board, is what you fancy listening to on your way to hospital. I doubt there'd be any confusion at all over what you said under the oxygen mask, but I expect it opens the door to numerous, humorous possibilities.

    In choosing your music, you'd need to think how it will fit in with the ambulance siren. Maybe something like this would work.

    Don't know about ambulance music, but on one occasion I rang my local surgery for some blood test results and was put on hold. The music that played while I was waiting was Elton John's 'Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word'. Brilliant.

    The theme from 'Doctor! No!' Once, I had a CT scan, and I was offered a pair of headphones to drown out the noise of the machine. One side of these didn't work, while from the other came some sort of heavy rock. I preferred the noise the machine made but since I couldn't move, I had to put up with a combination of both.
