Ambulance response targets missed


Welsh ambulance crews have failed to reach targets used to measure their response times. New figures show 57% of calls for the most serious category A calls received a response in eight minutes – short of the assembly government’s 60% target.

Earlier, a senior paramedic questioned the way the targets are used.

The Welsh Ambulance Service’s north Wales regional officer, Dafydd Jones Morris, said current targets did not consider whether a life was saved.

The latest results from 1 July to 30 September this year showed that Welsh ambulance crews failed to reach the 60% target of high-urgency calls reached within eight minutes.
