Ambulance trusts were the highestperforming 'sector' in the NHS on human resources and workforce capability and capacity gradings in this year's star-ratings, according to analysis of the figures by the Ambulance Service Association. Over two-thirds of the English ambulance service scored top marks overall in this category, and performed well in each of the HR subsets. All trusts scored 3-5 in HR management, according to the ASA. Ambulance trusts came bottom of the management performance league table in the 2004 staff survey.
