Solihull MP, Lorely Burt has written to the Chief Executive of West Midlands Ambulance Service to ask when he’ll keep his promise to provide a third Double-Crewed Ambulance for Solihull. (UPDATED - March 2nd 2015)
Last summer Dr Antony Marsh wrote to Mrs Burt promising to base a third Double-Crewed Ambulance at Solihull Hospital. Two Double-Crewed Ambulances have been based there since November 2014, following a campaign by Mrs Burt after the old ambulance station on Hermitage Road closed in 2013.
Mrs Burt is now pressing Dr Marsh to keep his promise to provide a third Double-Crewed Ambulance to cut response times for local residents.
Mrs Burt said, “I was very pleased when the ambulance service responded positively to my campaign by re-introducing Double-Crewed Ambulances in our area.
“I am sure these are making a difference already and providing much-needed assurance to my constituents.
“Of course, I expect the Ambulance Service to keep their promise to Solihull and I look forward to receiving news on the third Double-Crewed Ambulance soon.”
