Midlands Ambulances Not Meeting Turnaround Targets In Operation

Just 37% are taking 30 minutes from dropping a patient off to being back on a call.

One in four ambulances are meeting turnaround targets at the Midlands Regional Hospital in Tullamore. 

The Health Information and Quality Authority set out a thirty minute window for an ambulance to deliver a patient and return to service. 

The number of services achieving the time in Mullingar is 37% and 55% in Portlaoise. 

Just over a third of ambulances reached the standard time across the country.
