The Shadow Health Minister, Darren Millar has called for a 'serious investigation' into ambulance responses to 999 calls.
Figures he obtained under the Freedom of Information Act show 262 emergencies in Wales last year where the wait for an ambulance was over an hour and it took nearly two hours for an ambulance to reach a stab or gunshot incident.
We do not know what the outcomes in each of those cases are, whether people have died needlessly because an ambulance has not turned up. I think there needs to be a serious investigation into what has gone on in each of these cases.
