Access to emergency services


This inquiry will investigate the barriers to accessing emergency services, and how emergency services can be organised to ensure that the welfare of service users is always at the forefront of decision-making. It will look at processes organising these services at the local and national levels, and how priorities and targets are set. It will, for example, ask where and how creative practices could be rolled out to improve services, and how enhanced collaboration between police, fire and rescue, and emergency healthcare services could provide better outcomes for patients.
