Figures unearthed by the Conservative Shadow Health team using the Freedom of Information Act have shown that Wiltshire ranks third from the bottom in the performance of ambulance trusts nationwide, North Wiltshire MP James Gray revealed today.
“I am seriously considered that the speed at which our local ambulances are reaching emergencies in Wiltshire is deemed to be the third worst in the entire country,” Mr Gray said, speaking from Westminster this afternoon.
“The Government target is for 75% of serious emergencies (‘Category A’) to be reached within 8 minutes. But performance in Wiltshire is just 54.28%. Conservatives have expressed serious concern about the postcode lottery in health care for a long time, but the results obtained by my colleague Stephen O’Brien MP show just how widespread this is. The Health Secretary’s own PCT comes in at ninth worst in the country, but overall, the worst performing PCTs are in primarily Conservative and rural constituencies, whereas the best cover Labour areas.”
