The data requested is not collected centrally.

NHS England publish data on the performance of ambulance trusts in respect of the number of Category A Red One and Red Two calls responded to within eight minutes and the number of Category A calls resulting in an ambulance arriving at the scene of the incident against the 19 minute standard.

This data is published on a monthly basis at both an England national level and at individual ambulance trust level. The South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT) is the organisation responsible for providing ambulance services for the NHS across South West England, including Dorset. However, as of April 2016, SWASFT commenced the Ambulance Response Programme clinical coding trial and therefore only data up to but not including this date is available for Red 1, Red 2 and Category A calls.
