THE Welsh Ambulance Service will host its bi-monthly Board meeting next week.
The public can watch the Thursday 24 November meeting via Zoom to hear senior leaders discuss performance, plans for the future and how the Trust is working to tackle pressures.
Colleagues will also hear Julie’s Story, in which a nurse of 30 years recalls the traumatic occasion she waited three hours for an ambulance for her acutely unwell father.
Julie took her father to hospital in the car, where he subsequently passed away.
Chair Colin Dennis said: “Board meetings are a great way to discover more about our ambulance service, including how we’re trying to manage performance during one of the most difficult chapters in our history.
“While Julie’s Story will no doubt make for sad and uncomfortable viewing, it’s important that we are a transparent organisation and one which is committed to learning.
“Board meetings are also a chance to look to the future and hear about our plans to improve the way we deliver services to patients and improve the workplace for our people.”

The meeting will also be streamed live to the Trust’s Facebook page, and an agenda will be available on the Trust’s website in the coming days.
