South Central Ambulance Primary Care Trust

Volume 471: debated on Tuesday 29 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what his strategy is for improving the performance of South Central Ambulance Primary Care Trust. (182379)

It is for strategic health authorities (SHAs), as the local headquarters of the national health service, and primary care trusts, as commissioners, to ensure that strategies for improving performance are delivered by ambulance trusts.

The hon. Member may therefore wish to raise this matter directly with the chief executive of South Central SHA.

More generally, the Department, via the Recovery and Support Unit, discusses performance with SHAs to ensure that SHAs work with local organisations to address performance issues, and if appropriate with support from the National Ambulance Performance Implementation Lead.
