    Cllr Brian Silvester is calling on the ambulance service to take urgent action to improve their response times to emergency 999 calls because local lives are being put at risk by their poor performance in far too many Crewe postcodes. 

He said,"The response target for 999 emergency calls is that 75 percent of these Category A8 calls should be reached within 8 minutes. In 8 of the 10 Crewe (CW) post codes this target is not met and in three CW postcodes the response time is only met in 26% or less of the emergency call outs.( the areas covered by the post codes are listed below.) These are potentially life and death cases and such a poor performance is simply not acceptable.I have been campaigning on this since last year (see below) and will continue to do so until the response times are considerably improved.If local residents call for an ambulance in an emergency then they have a right to expect it to arrive within the response time that is required."

Information on performance figures are attached in the link below.$
