Dear Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

1. Considering your rota pattern for frontline emergency staff (those who are responsible for responding to 999 calls, for example Paramedics, Technicians, ECAs etc.), what was the total number of pre-planned working hours for April 2016 in your Trust?
2. How many pre-planned standard working hours were actually covered by frontline emergency staff in April 2016?
3. How many pre-planned standard working hours were covered by frontline emergency staff on voluntary overtime (ie. Pre-booked an overtime shift) in April 2016?
4. How many pre-planned standard working hours were covered by private ambulance service staff in April 2016?
5. How many additional hours were covered by frontline emergency staff on enforced overtime (ie. end of shift overtime) in April 2016?
6. How many instances occurred where frontline emergency staff (as individuals) did not receive a rest break during their shift in April 2016?
7. How many instances occurred where frontline emergency staff (as individuals) did receive a rest break during a shift but it was not compliant with the definition of a rest break (as defined in the European Working Time Directive) in April 2016?

If it is considered that this FOI request will require a cost or time to complete which exceeds the maximum cost or time stated within the applicable act, please answer the questions in the order that they are presented until the limit is reached and provide an incomplete response. Any remaining questions will be submitted as a separate FOI request at a later date.

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

David Roberts
