West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust - Trust experiences its busiest day ever
West Midlands Ambulance Service has experienced its busiest day ever.
Yesterday, demand spiked to a new high with emergency call numbers topping out at 5,001; this is the first time it has ever reached the 5,000 mark. As you can see in the graph above demand was higher than what would have been expected from 7 o’clock in the morning onwards.
To put this into context, the next busiest day, 1st January 2017 only saw 4,628 calls, some 373 calls less. New Years Day is traditionally the busiest day of the year.

Hard-pressed council tax players across the region will be footing the bill for a huge increase in Mayor Andy Street’s office over the next 12 months.
Councils across the region are meeting over the next few weeks to fix council tax levels for the forthcoming financial year – at the same time as the Mayor is quadrupling the size of his office!
Carillion was left with just £29m before going bankrupt
Carillion was in talks with the government since October as part of a desperate bid to stave off collapse, according to the chief executive.
Keith Cochrane says the construction giant was left with just £29 million in cash by the time it went bust on Monday.
