Access to emergency services : evidence to the House of Lords Public Services Committee inquiry
Views from across the NHS system on what is needed to address the current issues we're seeing in emergency services.
The ambulance service plays a significant role in the NHS. Whilst ambulance services are emergency services and work closely with other emergency services, their role within the NHS and the relationships they hold with other parts of the system are significant.
We need to ensure that the voice of the ambulance sector is involved in strategic planning and decision-making at national, regional, ICS and place level.
This evidence will provide information and insight to the Lords Public Services Committee inquiry on access to emergency services which will investigate the barriers to accessing emergency services and how emergency services can be organised to ensure that the welfare of service users is always at the forefront of decision-making
