Day vehicles to be removed from Warrington in ambulance service cuts

First published in News

UNION bosses have criticised the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) over cuts to frontline services including removing day vehicles from Warrington.

NWAS announced plans to save £13.8m in the next year and GMB, the union for staff in the NHS, has warned the move will affect patients.

Alan Stuttard, director of finance for NWAS, said any removal of services is done following a ‘quality impact assessment’ and the proposals are still under discussion.
