“Staff will deal with the situation as appropriate, depending on the nature of the passenger illness. Often, the emergency services will advise staff to leave the passenger on board the train, therefore queues can build up on the affected lines.

"Once it is safe to do so, staff will assist the ill passenger off the train and will give them the care they need once safely away from the platform.”
