NHS star ratings 2005: Ambulance trusts
The Healthcare Commission, the NHS watchdog, has released its 2005 NHS star ratings.

They cover every ambulance trust in England.

Each is given a star rating from zero to three, and is assessed against a number of key targets and a range of indictors.

The targets include whether they responded to Category A calls, about life-threatening conditions, within the government target of eight minutes.

The indictors also looked at clinical negligence, patient experience, call answering times and response times for non-urgent cases.
