Kirsty Williams comments on Welsh Ambulance review

2013 Ebrill 29 4:20 PM

Responding to the McClelland review of Welsh Ambulance Services, Kirsty Williams, Leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats, said:

"The Welsh Liberal Democrats welcome the publication of the report by Professor McClelland. It is a very important report and we must give its conclusions careful consideration.

"What matters now is that the people of Wales see action from the Welsh Labour Government and an improvement in this crucial service. Ambulance response rates in Wales are the worst throughout the UK and consecutive Labour Health Ministers have failed to get to grips with the problem.

"This is the 9th review we have seen into the Ambulance service in Wales in the last 6 years. Let us hope this is the last review because what we need now is action not more empty words and futile strategies."
