21307 - Ambulance Journeys and Accidents

1. I would like to know or the period from 1st Jan 2008 to 31 Dec 2018, for each calendar year (11-years):

1.1 the number of all ambulance journeys conducted by your Trust for vehicles with an Ambulance-Type Body ( for example, not including Response Cars and Taxis) including all response, conveyance and standby journeys for all calls including A&E, patient transport service (PTS) and specialist inter-facility journeys.

1.2 the number of road incidents-with-injury experienced by your Trust vehicles with an Ambulance type body as described above where any driver, passenger, patient within such vehicles were injured and/or any other party(s) including bystanders were injured, shown by category (ideally by Fatal, Serious, and Slight categories).

For clarification, the figures requested are not ‘responding to a road incident’ rather they are the figures for where your ambulance-body type vehicles were involved in a road incident-with-injury (collision etc.) themselves.
