Ambulance response targets missed for 12th month

It's the 12th month Ambulances in Wales have missed their targets

The Wales Ambulance Service has failed to meet its response time target for life-threatening calls for the 12th successive month.

The latest figures for May show 62.5% of ambulances arrived at the scene of life-threatening calls within 8 minutes. The target is 65%.

But this figure is up on April's figure.

Ambulances responded to 80% of calls within 12 minutes, and 94% within 20 minutes.
