Patient Impact Review in the Red 3 Pilot

A great deal of work has been undertaken to improve our governance processes and it has been agreed with NHS Improvement that, in order to make the governance review meaningful, this review will not take place until next year.

Acting Chief Executive Geraint Davies said: “We are satisfied that this report, which was led by an independent and external clinician and which looked at 185,000 calls, has identified no evidence of patient harm attributable to the Pilot. We do however recognise that there were significant governance and other failings around the Pilot.

“I am keen to ensure that the Trust now moves forward. SECAmb is going through an extremely challenging time but I am, with my senior team, committed to making the changes required to improve our service.”
