Recent figures published by NHS England reveal
the ambulance service is continuing to fail to meet
Government standards for responding to Category A
(Red 1 and Red 2) calls. The figures for March 2016 showed
only 66.5% of Red 1 calls were responded to within 8 minutes,
while 72.3% of Red 2 calls received a response within the same
timeframe (NHS England, 2016). This is compared to 73.4%
and 69.6%, respectively for the same period in 2015.
