Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN 7267, tabled on 25 May 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, what assessment he has made of the potential merits of including the ambulance service as an emergency service rather than an essential service.

No such assessment has been made. The ambulance service is an emergency service. National Health Service ambulance trusts are category one responders under the Civil Contingencies Act 2004.
