Cowley low traffic neighbourhoods in Oxford
Richard Parnham made this Rhyddid Gwybodaeth request to South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust
This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.
Dear South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust,
I am trying to establish whether the recently-installed low traffic neighbourhoods (LTNs) around Temple Cowley, Church Cowley and Florence Park in Oxford have been evaluated by the South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust in relation to the risk that they pose to your organisation's ability to meet it targets for reaching patients requiring your services. In particular, I keen to know whether any risk evaluations has been undertaken by your organisation in relation to
a) possibly longer journeys / journey times required by the newly-installed LTNs;
b) any ongoing driver confusion as to correct locations of the recently installed LTN barriers; and
c) any risk mitigation measures proposed by your service to Oxfordshire County to reduce such risk - i.e. removable / retracting barriers.
The obvious place to find such a risk evaluation relating to the Oxford LTNs would be:
a) your organisation's Corporate Risk Register (operational risks)
b) its Board Assurance Framework (strategic risks) and
c) the work undertaken by your Risk, your Assurance and Compliance Committee, your Audit Committee and your Quality and Safety Committee.
However, I am also keen to locate any (less formal) risks evaluations undertaken by your organisation in relation to the above-mentioned Oxford LTNs.
Please provide with with any relevant materials relating to my request, however informal and preliminary. I am happy to have people's names and non LTN discussions redacted, where necessary.
This is an automatic reply.

Risk evaluations where not conducted locally in Oxfordshire as there was no formally reported incidents or changes in our response times.
