Ambulance trust performance for response times is published monthly and monitored through regular discussions between the Department and strategic health authorities and against the NHS performance framework.
For 2011-12, all ambulance trusts met the response time standards. The Category A8 performance measure of 75%, for the proportion of Category A calls resulting in an emergency response arriving within eight minutes was 76.1%. The Category Al9 performance measure of 95%, for the proportion of calls to receive an ambulance vehicle capable of transporting the patient within 19 minutes of the request for transport being made was 96.8%.
