22836 - 2019 - Ambulance Waiting Times

Please could you provide the following information regarding ambulance wait times.
This is for the period of 1st august 2018 to 31st July 2019.
If an ambulance is requested via 999 asking for assistance or assessment and the call has been triaged to 1 hour, what is the average length of time that individual has to wait.
Please give figures for the number of patients triaged for an ambulance for 1 hour wait that has to wait longer for each day.
I would like the average wait times when a health professional has requested an ambulance for 1  hour. Ie not immediate threat to life but seriously unwell and needs transfer to hospital.. 
Please give figures for c1 , c2 , c3 and c4 and define each category further.

     Please note, many of the average response times are greater than one hour, the Trust aim to be in regular contact with each incident via an AOC Call Handler or ECAT Clinician to ensure welfare and monitor any deterioration of the patient’s condition, incidents are upgraded to a blue light response if concerns are raised, and during the call Call Handlers will advise of any delays at the time of booking.
