London Ambulance Service Response Times

EDM number 897 in 1993-94, proposed by Bridget Prentice on 17/03/1994.

That this House notes that one year after an official report slammed the management of the London Ambulance Service for a catalogue of failures, ambulance response times have worsened; draws attention to the fact that, of emergency calls, the proportion activated within three minutes was only 29 per cent. in December 1993, compared with 35 per cent. in December 1992, and compared with a Patient's Charter standard of 95 per cent., that the proportion responded to within eight minutes was only 10 per cent. in December 1993, compared with 12 per cent. in December 1992, and compared with a Patient's Charter standard of 50 per cent., and that the proportion responded to within 14 minutes was only 57 per cent., compared with 59 per cent. in December 1992, compared with a Patient's Charter standard of 95 per cent.; regrets that actions of the Secretary of State do not appear to have improved the situation; and, in view of the failure of the service to get patients to hospitals in reasonable time, calls for an immediate halt to the proposed closures of accident and emergency departments in London.

This motion has been signed by a total of 50 MPs.
