Ambulance Quality Indicator data published today

NEW data which gives an insight into the Welsh Ambulance Service’s performance has been published today, Wednesday 26 July 2017.

The Ambulance Quality Indicator (AQI) data – which looks at things like clinical care, appropriate interventions and patient flow – helps people assess our performance across the five-step Ambulance Care Pathway and not just against the eight-minute target for Red calls.

The AQIs were developed in collaboration with the Trust’s commissioners, the Emergency Ambulance Service Committee (EASC), and the Chief Ambulance Service Commissioner, Stephen Harrhy.

This is the seventh lot of data to be published since the launch in October 2015 of the Trust’s new Clinical Response Model.

During the period 1 April 2017 to 30 June 2017, the Trust –

  • Delivered 60 community engagement events
  • Answered 121,472 999 calls
  • Achieved a Hear and Treat rate of 6.3%
  • Achieved a pan-Wales Red performance of 79.7%
  • Responded to 95% of Amber incidents in one hour, 28 minutes and 58 seconds

In addition, 96.1% of suspected stroke patients were documented as receiving an appropriate stroke care bundle, and 10,658 hours were lost to notification to handover delays.
