PERFORMANCE: Ambulance turnaround performance in the Coventry and Rugby clinical commissioning group area improved dramatically in May, but remained below target.

The CCG’s performance report for July showed that 80.6 per cent of ambulance drop offs were completed in 30 minutes in May, against a target of 90 per cent.

However, this was the best performance since at least June 2012. In April, performance stood at 67.9 per cent, and had dived below 50 per cent in February and March.
