Hæstorp rejects knowledge of long-term problems at 112

– I have not heard of these things. I can see in Berlingske that they refer to meetings at executive level in the emergency preparedness and at middle management level, so no, it is not something that has become known to me, she says.

Berlingske was able to report on Friday that the call center 112 has had problems with so-called missed calls for a long time.

A missed call covers the fact that citizens do not receive immediate help from a health professional at the region’s emergency center due to queues.

On Monday, the newspaper writes that the top management of the Emergency Preparedness has been familiar with the problem for a long time. And that one has not managed to solve it.

Already last summer, problems with missed calls were described in detail at a board meeting between the Emergency Preparedness in the Capital Region and the Capital Emergency Management Agency.

On Friday, the Capital Region of Denmark ordered a study of the problems.

The current chairman of the regional council in the region, Lars Gaardhøj (S), cannot set a time for when the statement is complete.

– There should be no doubt that I have a great desire to get a cover as soon as possible. But it also needs to be done thoroughly.

According to both Gaardhøj and Hæstorp Andersen, the region’s executive committee will receive an oral review of the case on Tuesday.

Lars Gaardhøj believes that it is too early to talk about consequences in the case.

– When we have a proper basis to discuss on, then we must make the decisions that need to be made. We will discuss any aftermath afterwards.

Sophie Hæstorp Andersen calls the case “deeply worrying”.

– It is very important that it is resolved as soon as possible, and I am confident that Lars Gaardhøj and the executive committee will take care of that.

– It is completely grotesque if it has been going on since 2019, without us having had the opportunity to act on it politically, she says.

DF’s health spokesperson, Liselott Blixt, has called Minister of Health Magnus Heunicke (S) in consultation on the matter.
