Dear South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust,

Please can you advise what consultation has taken place between the Organisers of Velo South (due to take place on 23rd September 2018) and SECAMB.

Please advise how the public will receive a response to 999 calls on that day in an area that is already under served by;
- ambulance stations (having had multiple closures during recent years)
- hospitals (there are no A&E departments within the 'full loop' road closure)
- GPs (noting this event is on a Sunday, only mobile Out of Hours doctors will be available, and likely in short supply given the scale of the event and it's impact on emergency services).

Please also advise how this will be resourced and the cost impact on SECAMB for an area that will effectively be isolated by a 'full loop' of road closures, impacting surrounding traffic and making travel times for emergency vehicle response greater than they already are.

Please disclose any financial sum(s) received, agreed or due from the organisers of Velo South.

Yours faithfully,

Matt Alsbury-Morris
