To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what assessment he has made of the potential merits of using intelligent conveyancing systems to assist ambulance services in taking patients to the most appropriate hospital; and which ambulance services in England do not operate such systems.
This information is not collected centrally. National Health Service ambulance trusts are responsible for the operational response to emergency 999 calls. NHS Improvement work with trusts to support the uptake of new technologies where there is evidence that they support good practice.
London Ambulance Service uses an intelligent conveyancing system, which is subject to regular review.
