Ambulance Services: Standards

Volume 487: debated on Tuesday 3 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether he has any plans (a) to assess and (b) publish the performance of ambulance trusts at district-by-district level; and if he will make a statement. (253904)

Emergency ambulance response time data are collected centrally by the Department of Health at ambulance trust level. The Department currently has no plans to change the level at which this data are collected. It is a matter for the local national health service to ensure there is appropriate provision of emergency services that are responsive to people’s needs.
