Please find below a statement from South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SECAmb) following the publication today of an NHS England report on the handling of certain calls passed from NHS111 to 999 last winter.
Paul Sutton, Chief Executive of SECAmb said: “Patient safety is fundamental to what we do. As paramedics, we come to work to save lives and we would never do anything to deliberately put patients at risk. We understand the concerns that the public have and wish to reassure people that we work constantly to provide the safest service possible.
