Dear Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust,

Would you be kindly able to assist me in answering the following questions, relating to elderly fallers.

a) On average in 2018, 2019, 2021 and so far in 2022, how many 999/111 calls were made to you regarding patients who had fallen, over the age of 65, at home?

b) In those same years, what was the average call category placed on those incidents, and what was/is the average waiting time?

c) How many of the patients, in those same years, were conveyed to hospital or discharged at home?

d) Do you know how many patients were conveyed due to a potential ‘long-lie’?

e) Across the Region, what local commissioned falls services work with you to respond to these calls?

f) What is the average cost to you in responding to those 999 calls?

Yours faithfully,

Matt Firestone
