Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear West Midlands Ambulance Service University NHS Foundation Trust,

In recent months I have observed many ambulances around the Erdington Hub and Sutton Coldfield area not using their sirens when attempting to navigate through traffic or approaching busy junctions. This occurs during all hours, including daylight, resulting in Ambulances being delayed en route.

In an attempt to understand this behaviour, could you please provide the following under the Freedom of Information Act:

1. Current WMAS policies and training documentation regarding usage of sirens and navigating through traffic during emergency responses.

2. Information on if and when the policies on siren usage were last changed in order to reduce noise, and the associated impact on response times.

Yours faithfully,

Marc Walker
