Ambulance stations may close in East Midlands

31st August 2012

East Midlands Ambulance Service is planning to close stations across its area under plans designed to improve emergency response times.

The trust is embarking on a three-month public consultation next month on its proposed move at a time that it has seen 5% more calls year on year. The plan includes closing 66 existing ambulance stations and replacing them with 13 hubs where specialist teams will prepare ambulances. The service will also create 131 “tactical deployment points” to replace the 153 existing standby locations.
