Five patients made 8,303 emergency calls in a year Ambulances and emergency response vehicles were deployed more than 1,500 times to five patients in 12 months, the BBC has learned.
A total of 8,303 emergency calls were made by the five most frequent UK callers.
An NHS spokesman said the calls were often related to mental health, chronic pain and alcohol or drug dependence.
Vicki Nash from mental health charity Mind said the figures show that individuals' needs were not being met.
The figures were released after a Freedom of Information request to the UK's 14 ambulance trusts. BBC News
