Make the NHS Ambulance Service recognised as an "Emergency Service"

Make the NHS Ambulance Service recognised as an "Emergency Service"

Officially recognise the NHS Ambulance Service as an "Emergency Service".

Why is this important?

Did you know that the UK NHS Ambulance Service is NOT currently recognised by the Government as an "Emergency Service"? (we are currently only classified as an essential service).

Why is it important to receive recognition? = If the Ambulance service is officially recognised as an "Emergency Service" the funding would come from central government rather than the NHS budget.

How would this affect you? - You would almost certainly get a better funded, better trained and better equipped ambulance service for yourself and your family = if you think that is important?

How it will be delivered

Deliver by hand with press coverage.
