EMAS meeting over potential ambulance stations closures begins

A meeting has started in Nottinghamshire to finalise major restructuring plans for ambulance services in the East Midlands.

The Trust wants to reduce the number of ambulance stations and instead create several "hubs".

Members of the East Midlands Ambulance board are discussing the proposals at King's Mill Hospital in Sutton in Ashfield.

Campaigners have voiced concerns over the proposed changes. In some communities protests have been held and residents have signed petitions in an attempt to keep their local ambulance stations open.
