Ambulance service faces cut in funding


The East of England Ambulance Service is facing a cut in funding, after failing to meet response targets. The commissioning group responsible for buying healthcare services in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough, said it would withhold 2 per cent of its contract until standards are met.

The ambulance service last year failed to meet some targets to reach the most seriously ill patients in 19 minutes.
