HC Deb 10 April 2002 vol 383 c433W
Mr. Dismore

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what the average cost of the response to 999 ambulance calls received between 10pm and 7am in Barnet was in each of the last three years; how many such calls there were; what estimate he has made of the number of such calls for 2002–03; and if he will make a statement.

Ms Blears

Information about the cost of a response for ambulance services is not required to be collected centrally.

In 1999 a total of 6,699 calls were received in Barnet between 10pm and 7am; in 2000 there were 6,663 calls and in 2001, 6,854 calls were received.

The London Ambulance Service would expect to receive approximately 7,000 calls in Barnet between 10pm and 7am in 2002–03.
