Number of GP within 4hours calls attended within 4 hours, remote areas, Cowal

The request was partially successful.

Dr Robert S. Coull

Dear Scottish Ambulance Service,

Please could you supply me with the following information:

The number of GP ‘within 4 hour’ ambulance requests attended within 4 hours of the call being received over the last four years for the following remote areas:

Strachur, postcodes beginning PA27 8
St Catherines, postcodes beginning PA25 8
Cairndow, postcodes beginning PA26 8
Tighnabruaich, postcodes beginning PA21 2
Lochgoilhead, postcodes beginning PA24 8

The average time to arrival and the longest times to arrival for the same data stack.

The public interest in this request is a perception that within 4 hour ambulances to remote areas in Cowal, Argyll, do not arrive within 4 hours, anecdotally can take six or more hours to arrive. Also, the request was prompted by a critical incident in which a patient waited more than 4 hours to be collected.

Yours faithfully,

Dr Robert S. Coull
