NHS ambulance services

Ambulance services are finding it increasingly difficult to cope with rising demand.

Contributing factors may include the increasing numbers of elderly patients with multiple conditions, an increasing number of alcohol- and mental health-related issues, the availability of primary care services in the community and how patients seek help. The report argues that increased funding for these services has not matched rising demand, and future settlements are likely to be tougher.
