From 2001-02 to 2003-04, national health service trusts that received three stars in the NHS performance ratings received a capital allocation of up to £1 million to support service development. Ambulance trusts received a rating for their performance across a range of areas, including ambulance response times.
The Department launched two capital incentive schemes to reward NHS ambulance trusts for marked performance improvement against the Category A 8-minute standard, one for 2004, the other for 2006-07.
No future financial rewards for ambulance trust performance have been considered by the Department for 2007-08 to 2010-11.
