Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust,

Please could you provide the following information...

1) Number of Activations by Scheme / Callsign for Community First Responders in your region. Please include a description if listed by callsign so it is clear the area the CFR responds in.

2) The percentage of CFR activations where a CFR arrived before a trust mobilised resource, i.e a DCA or RRV.

3) The percentage of CFR activations where a CFR has been directly responsible for meeting the response time target for a call type. i.e a Red1 call where a CFR arrived within 8 minutes but was not backed up by a trust resource within 8 minutes.

4) The number of calls where the CFR was the closest resource to an incident but not activated.

5) The average distance travelled for a CFR attending an incident, listed by county.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Latham

Good afternoon

Further to our below request for clarification, we have had another look at your request and we feel the information you have requested would be very time consuming to provide therefore, could we please suggest maybe a 6 month period for the time frame for us to stay within the time limit that is set out within section 12 of the Freedom of Information Act?

Also, unfortunately ,we are unable to provide any information around call categorisation (i.e. red 1/red e) after May 2016 as from June 2016, the Trust has been involved in the National Ambulance Response Programme trial. For further information on this trial, please use the following link;

We look forward to hearing from you.

Good Morning

Please see the attached letter in respect of your recent request for information under the Freedom of Information Act.

We have also attached a quick survey and we were wondering if we could spare a few moments of your time to complete and return to either myself or the Head of Governance and Risk [email address] to help us improve the service we currently provide.

Kind Regards
