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 release since the recommendations in the McClelland Strategic Review of Welsh Ambulance Services, this information will be provided as additional contextual information alongside existing data to aid understanding on the performance of the ambulance service. These statistics will be added to the release due out on 25 March. 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 will be given in the comparability section in the notes of the release.
We would welcome feedback from users on the presentation and usefulness of the information once published.
