Answered By: 
The Mayor

My Deputy Mayor, Victoria Borwick, met with Ann Radmore, the London Ambulance Service (LAS) Chief Executive on 23 January 2013 to discuss issues facing LAS, including those highlighted in the Care Quality Commission, and how they plan to deal with these issues in the coming months.

Victoria has requested that she be kept updated and given sight of the Service's plans when they have progressed. We remain keen to work with the LAS to help to ensure the best possible care for Londoners.
