£10.2m investment for new Welsh ambulances

HEALTH secretary Vaughan Gething has announced a £10.2m investment to fund 100 new NHS vehicles in Wales.

33 emergency response vehicles and 25 ambulances are said to be move manoeuvrable and more pollution efficient and will replace the ageing ambulances.

The update also includes 33 non-emergency transport vehicles and nine specialist major incident vehicles.

The Welsh Ambulance Service is seeing a continuous rise on the daily emergency calls they receive, with over 1,300 on average.

Over the past seven years, the Welsh Government has invested over £50m in new ambulance vehicles.

Vaughan Gething said: “The further investment of £10m in our fleet of vehicles for the Welsh Ambulance Service is good news for patients, our staff and the environment.

“My visit also meant I could listen to frontline staff about their work. I was impressed as ever by the commitment and honesty of the NHS staff.”
