Health: Emergency Care Practitioners

Volume 699: debated on Monday 18 February 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many patients were visited by emergency care practitioners instead of ambulance crews over the last 36 months; and [HL1786]

Whether they will provide a breakdown in figures for the outcomes for patients visited by emergency care practitioners in the place of ambulance crews. [HL1787]

The information is not collected centrally. It is a matter for individual ambulance trusts as to whether and how they employ emergency care practitioners.
