MP Encourages Ambulance Boss to Honour Important Promise

Solihull MP, Lorely Burt has written to the Chief Executive of West Midlands Ambulance Service to ask when he’ll keep his promise to provide a third Double-Crewed Ambulance for Solihull.

Last summer Dr Antony Marsh wrote to Mrs Burt promising to base a third Double-Crewed Ambulance at Solihull Hospital. Two Double-Crewed Ambulances have been based there since November 2014, following a campaign by Mrs Burt after the old ambulance station on Hermitage Road closed in 2013.

Mrs Burt is now pressing Dr Marsh to keep his promise to provide a third Double-Crewed Ambulance to cut response times for local residents.

Mrs Burt said, “I was very pleased when the ambulance service responded positively to my campaign by re-introducing Double-Crewed Ambulances in our area.

“I am sure these are making a difference already and providing much-needed assurance to my constituents.

“Of course, I expect the Ambulance Service to keep their promise to Solihull and I look forward to receiving news on the third Double-Crewed Ambulance soon.”
