Ambulance Services: West Midlands

Volume 464: debated on Monday 15 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if he will assess the (a) methodology and (b) accuracy of the analysis conducted by the West Midlands Ambulance Service of responses to its consultation on reconfiguration of its emergency operations centres. (158227)

The Department is clear that arrangements for where ambulance service control rooms are situated, and how calls into the control rooms are received, are a matter for the ambulance services themselves.

The consultation on changes to emergency operations centres currently being held by the West Midlands Ambulance Service is locally led. Therefore, the West Midlands Ambulance Service would be in the best position to provide more details about the arrangements in place in this area.
