– Welsh Ambulance Service spokesperson
The Health Minister has commissioned a review of Welsh Ambulance Service which will include specific focus on how improvements can be achieved in the responsiveness of the emergency ambulance service. The Welsh Ambulance Service will continue to work closely with Local Health Boards and the Welsh Government to achieve improvements.
Ambulances took more than an hour to arrive at 262 emergencies in Wales last year, figures released to the Conservatives under the Freedom of Information Act show. Paramedics took almost two hours to reach a 999 call from a stab or gunshot incident.
