A woman who called 999 with no medical need 740 times in three months has been fined £2000.
She also rang 97 times on Christmas Day.
The frequent caller, whose actions cost the NHS £13,276, appeared in court earlier this month where she pleased guilty to persistently making use of a public communications network to cause annoyance, inconvenience and anxiety.
She has been told to pay £2,000 compensation to East Midlands Ambulance Service and was banned from calling the emergency services for five years, other than in a genuine emergency.
The woman has also been sentenced to a 12 month community order, 15 days of rehabilitation activity, and will receive mental health treatment.
Ian Brett, Emergency Operations Commander, was overseeing the control room on one occasion when the caller used three different phones to ring 68 times in eight hours.
All 740 inappropriate emergency calls took place between 29 November 2017 and 11 February 2018.
