Commenting on the confusion over whether a meeting of the Emergency Ambulance Services Committee will take place in public today, and if it will make a final decision on whether or not to close the Welshpool and Caernarfon’s Air Ambulance bases, Russell George MS, Welsh Conservative Shadow Health Minister said:

“What a shambolic process.

“Today is supposedly meant to be the day when The Emergency Ambulance Services Committee (EASC) is making its final decision into the future of Wales Air Ambulance provision, specifically on the recommendation before them to close Welshpool and Caernarfon’s bases.

“EASC papers have clearly set out in there meeting earlier this month that the final decision will be made today.

“There is no information available on the EASC website as to the time of this meeting, or how the public can watch the proceedings, or even if we will be permitted to watch. The process started shambolically 18 months ago, and what we have now is a complete lack of information on the final stages of this process with a lack information and transparency.

“My message to the Welsh Government, and to Mr Harrhy, the Chief Ambulance Services Commissioner, is get your act together. This is an issue of such importance to the people of Mid and North Wales, and radio silence is not good enough.”
