"The ambulance driver was inappropriate"

About: Arriva Transport Solutions Limited

(as a service user),

I got picked up by the ambulance transport and the driver asked why I was attending the hospital, I told him a bit about it but as soon as I said I was single well it turned in to another story. he started being very crude and then went on saying how nice my eyes were and if I lived alone! At this stage I was freaking out because we we getting close to my destination and I really felt that I wouldn't of been able to get rid of him so I asked to stop at the top of my road and I told him when I got out of the car that I'd walk the rest of the way in which he asked me not to report him as he new he'd done wrong. I've got disability so walking isn't easy 4 me. I felt horrible and didn't like the fact he had my home address and don't think he should be around vulnerable people.
