HEALTH chiefs are appealing for views from the public as part of a radical new inspection programme for the South’s ambulance services.

England’s Chief Inspector of Hospitals is inviting feedback about the South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust.

The Care Quality Commission will inspect the trust from September 8.

Inspectors will visit emergency service centres, using the public’s concerns and praise to guide interviews with paramedics and other staff.

The South Central Ambulance Service trust covers four million people across Hampshire and the rest of south central England.

Members of the public can offer their views by visiting, emailing or calling 03000 616161.
