Ambulance response times in Wales 'put patients at risk'

Help

Critically ill patients are being put at risk and urgent action is needed to sort out a struggling ambulance service.

That is the call from opposition parties after the latest statistics for December showed the ambulance service only managed to respond to 56.1% of the most urgent calls within eight minutes.

It has now failed to hit the Welsh government's target of responding to 65% for seven months in a row.

The target in England and Scotland is 75%.

Health correspondent Owain Clarke reports.
