London Ambulance Service Patients Forum put on notice by London Ambulance Service

The London Ambulance Service Patients Forum is meeting tonight with discussions on London’s homeless, carry chairs, forthcoming scrutiny of the London Ambulance Service by the London Assembly’s Health and Public Services committee, and the delay in going over to Foundation Trust status until November. The LAS has also informed us that we can no longer use their Board Room for meetings from April, on grounds of health and safety (too many members of the public attending) and that they will withdraw recognition of the Forum once Foundation Trust status is granted – thus removing Forum members from LAS committees etc.

With currently no access to public funds the most immediate problem for the Forum is to try and find a low cost meeting place in central London from April onwards. The Forum is currently one of the most successful pan London public and patient involvement bodies.
