To ask the Secretary of State for Health, how many people making telephone calls to NHS 111 that were categorised as life threatening in the South East Coast NHS Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust area waited longer than eight minutes for a response during the project the Trust ran on how emergency calls were dealt with in winter 2014-15.

I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on 5 November 2015 to Question 14422

The requested information is not held by the Department. However, a report published by NHS England on 5 November 2015 states that approximately 26,000 calls were transferred from NHS 111 for a NHS 999 ambulance dispatch during the duration of the pilot project.
