The funding will allow the Welsh Ambulance Service to upgrade their existing computer systems.

It's hoped that the new system will help deliver faster ambulance response times.

In Wales we have seen real improvements in ambulance response times; it's an area where we are leading the way in the UK. The new and improved dispatch system will help the Welsh Ambulance Service to continue to improve and to provide a service that is fit for the future.

– Vaughan Gethin AM, Health Secretary
