The London Assembly Health Committee is currently looking at how Londoners could have more of say in the way that the London Ambulance Service works, what Londoners want from the Ambulance Service in the future and how it can be helped to perform better.
What are the main things you expect from London’s Ambulance Service? What do you think are the main challenges that the Service is facing today? And what do you think the London Ambulance Service could do about the number of alcohol related call outs?
The London Assembly Health Committee published their report ‘Supporting London’s ambulance service’, which makes recommendations on how best to support the London Ambulance Service. The committee listened to members of the public, representatives of the London Ambulance Service Patients Forum and Talk London.
The recommendations include:
- Develop an access to work programme to help unemployed Londoners get a job within the service.
- Share best practice to encourage workforce diversity and engage more with London’s diverse communities.
- Identify community safety needs and the resource needed to maintain a safe and secure environment.
- Identify gaps in existing provision for falls, mental health, maternity care and end of life care by developing a city-wide response.
