West Yorkshire NHS to run ‘high 999 service’ during strike

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: David Whiting David Whiting

Due to a planned strike, the public are being warned to use ambulance services wisely on Monday.

Alternative plans have been put in place by Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust to cope during the strike called by Unite between 3pm and 8pm, in protest at plans to changes in shift patterns.

David Whiting, chief executive at Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust, said: “Our plans to maintain high standards of patient care and minimise any impact from previous episodes of strike action were effective and we have taken steps to ensure our service remains just as resilient this time.

“We would like to reassure members of the public that our contingency plans continue to focus on providing a safe, responsive and high-quality emergency service which remains the trust’s top priority.”
