The waiting time for an ambulance is a threat because if the ambulance gets to the location after a long period of time the person could be seriously injured or even dead, the ambulance waiting times need to decrease because if someone is in a severe condition they will need the ambulance straight away, because they could worse. The physicians are a threat in the NHS because they are impatient, and their level of care is low, which will put patients of the service, and they will go somewhere else or complain, the physician?s need to care more about their patients and try to be more helpful to them, because they patients will get unhappy with their service and complain which will make the NHS look bad.
