Closed petition Drastically reduce waiting times for ambulances and at A&E departments

My father had to wait 13 hours after suffering from a serious stroke. Part of the problem was ambulances stuck at A&E departments for several hours waiting to offload patients. Lack of beds and staff have been quoted as a cause. As a result of the long wait my father's chances of recovery have been reduced.

A news story was run on BBC Wales Today, BBC radio Wales and BBC Wales website. Welsh Ambulance Service confirmed time scales with BBC news and apologised. I am waiting for response from ambulance service and call logs
