General description

Figures show the number of emergency ambulance calls made in Wales by date. The data are taken from management information and are subject to change.

Data collection and calculation

Weekly return from Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust. Data is submitted via an EXCEL file and transferred to a SQL database.

With the number of coronavirus cases decreasing over the last few months, we are changing the content of this release from 17 June 2021 onwards, as outlined below.

This is currently published each Thursday on StatsWales. From 17 June 2021 onwards, we will no longer update this data.

At the start of the pandemic, official statistic on emergency calls to the ambulance service were paused, and we introduced daily data taken from management information. However, official statistics on calls to the ambulance service are once again published every month as part of the NHS activity and performance statistical release.

Frequency of publication

Weekly

Data reference periods

February 2020 onwards

Revisions information

Figures are subject to change as incident records can be updated up to 5 days after closing, as there is a 5 day period for amendments prior to an incident record becoming "locked". In exceptional circumstances incidents can also be amended more than 5 days after the start of lockdown in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Statistical quality

Figures exclude incidents in England that were attended by WAST resources.
