There has been a drastic increase in the number of London ambulances having to wait more than 30 minutes when arriving at hospital to hand over their patients, a FOI request has revealed.
The BBC report:
The number of ambulances in London waiting more than 30 minutes from arriving at hospital to handing over patients has gone up about 66% in the last year, Labour has claimed.
Shadow health minister Jamie Reed revealed the figure, from a Freedom of Information request, in the Commons.
He said ambulances were missing their targets “in responding to the most serious life-threatening callouts”.
