Ambulance service calls in extra staff

By Lynsey Bradford, Town Reporter Tuesday 5th August 2014

ADDITIONAL frontline staff are being brought in by Yorkshire Ambulance Service to cope with the significant increased demand since the start of the year.

At a meeting of the trust's board, members said they were working hard to address the challenges and make improvements for the benefit of patients.


Chairman Della Cannings said: "Our focus remains on better management of the high demand and configuration of our operational cover and, as part of an on-going programme, we are increasing our accident and emergency workforce which will see additional frontline staff joining the trust over the next three months."
