Number of cardiac arrests attended within 4 minutes

The request was successful.

Dr Robert S. Coull

Dear Scottish Ambulance Service,

Please could you provide me with the following data:
- number of cardiac arrests attended per year nationally since 2007
- percentage of cardiac arrests where the first resource arrived within 4 minutes of the call being received per year.

The public interest in this request is that I am concerned about a lack of focus in the Scottish Ambulance Service on response times to cardiac arrests impacting survival statistics and am currently engaged with the SAS on a topic involving how response times can be improved by the increased use of immediate care responders who are 'blue light' trained.

Yours faithfully,

Dr Robert S. Coull
