East Midlanders still have time to discuss the future of their ambulance service

Residents living in the East Midlands have until the end of today to have their say on the future of ambulance services in the region.

Proposals include closing 66 ambulance stations and replacing them with 13 purpose-built 'superhubs' and 128 community ambulance posts.

It's hoped these changes will help improve response times and make the service more efficient and effective.
