In response to recent user demand for information on Red 1 and Red 2 calls (which make up category A), and to further supplement the changes made in this report since the recommendations in the McClelland Strategic Review of Welsh Ambulance Services, these statistics have been added to this month’s report. This is provided as additional contextual information alongside existing data to aid understanding on the performance of the ambulance service. It is important to note that these statistics (as with the existing published statistics) are not fully comparable to the other countries in the UK. More detail is given in the comparability section in the notes of the report.
