The following is an extract from Arriva Transport Solutions' statement regarding delays at the RUH in Bath:
– Ed Potter, Head of the South West at Arriva Transport Solutions
We are aware that some patients have waited longer than they should and I sincerely apologise for any distress this caused. On the first working day of the contract, ATSL received a higher number of calls than anticipated, which meant that NHS staff and patients did experience delays in calls being answered. We took action by adding additional phone lines and brought in trained staff from other areas to answer calls. By the end of the day we saw a significant improvement in the response time for all telephone enquiries and we have seen further improvements yesterday and today.

– Local beat manager PC Samantha Kayser
We're not pleased at all to have caught so many drivers in such a short space of time, but we do hope that it will send a strong message to motorists that we will enforce the speed limit through the village.
Local people identified the speeding problem, we helped them set up the Speed Watch group, and they're having an immediate effect.
