'Deep-rooted problems' within the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust must be addressed, according to a report published today.
The review was commissioned by the Welsh Government last November.
Among the recommendations made in the review are:
- Address the 'fundamental problem' with current accountability, funding and governance arrangements for ambulance services in Wales
- Address 'deep-rooted problems' with Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust and 'persisting issues' in its relationship with partners
- Put in place 'robust planning' to deliver a skilled and modernised Emergency Medical Services workforce
- Develop alternative care pathways 'to allow patients to be treated at the right time and in the right place' and reduce unnecessary pressure on A&E
- Welsh Government and NHS Wales 'should put in place resilient interim arrangements to ensure services continue safely during any transitional period'
