Ambulance Services: Standards

Volume 508: debated on Monday 29 March 2010

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what estimate he made of the number of patients in (a) North West Cambridgeshire constituency, (b) the Cambridgeshire Primary Care Trust area, (c) the Peterborough Primary Care Trust area and (d) England who were attended to within (i) 10, (ii) 30, (iii) 60 and (iv) 120 minutes of requesting an ambulance in each of the last five years. (324596)

The Department does not collect response time data of ambulance services in the format requested, and has therefore not made an estimate of the number of patients who were attended within 10, 30, 60 and 120 minutes of requesting an ambulance.

The data that the Department does collect on ambulance response time are in accordance with the national response time targets and these are published on an annual basis in the statistical bulletin, Ambulance Services, England. These documents have already been placed in the Library and on the Information for health and social care website at:
