Petition on Ludlow Ambulance hub receives unanimous support from Shropshire Councillors

On Thursday, Shropshire Council debated a petition from Ludlow resident Darren Childs. The petition requests that the Council support our campaign in returning an ambulance hub back in Ludlow, South Shropshire or the return of local rapid response vehicles who can be on call or based at local areas like Ludlow hospital, GP surgery, fire station, to attend until an ambulance arrives. Councillors debated the petition for longer than the allocated time of 15 minutes and concluded by unanimously supporting it. Key points made by councillors during the discussion were: All the rural ambulance hubs should be reinstated Scrutiny had failed to address the problem and even had failed to meet A select committee should be set up by the council to review the ambulance crisis Ambulance performance should be measured by postcode The council should declare that it has no confidence in the management of the local NHS. A full transcript of the debate is below.
