Lincolnshire Health Committee wants 'flawed' consultation to be reviewed
The Health Scrutiny Committee for Lincolnshire is to write to the Secretary of State to ask for East Midlands Ambulance Service’s (EMAS) “flawed” consultation to be reviewed – with the committee’s ultimate goal being a return to a dedicated ambulance service for the county.
Meanwhile, the members also quizzed the United Lincolnshire Hospitals Trust (ULHT) on its death rate figures being higher than expected and received a number of reassurances.
The decision to write to the Government was made at its meeting yesterday (March 20), after the committee expressed concerns over EMAS’ recent consultation process and its ambulance response times.
A mother and her two children are in hospital after they were rescued from a fire at a house in Baskerville Road in Stoke on Trent. A 22 year old woman and her two children, a six year old boy and a two year old girl, were taken to North Staffordshire hospital. They are in a stable condition.
