Ambulance service "closure isn't about finances"

There have been protests this morning over plans to close ambulance stations in Nottinghamshire.

Campaigners believe lives could be put at risk but East Midlands Ambulance Service says replacing the stations with a number of super hubs and standby points, will improve efficiency.

"They've said they want the public to have their say. Well the public in Bassetlaw have had their say and and what they've said is 'This is not good enough. We want to keep our ambulance stations in Bassetlaw." John Mann MP Bassetlaw

"It is not about finances. This is about looking after patients better and looking after our staff better" Phil Milligan, East Midlands Ambulance Service
