Press Release - Alderney Ambulance Service 05.12.2019

For immediate release 5th December 2019

Alderney Ambulance Service

The States of Alderney is working closely with the Alderney Ambulance Service and the St John's Ambulance in Guernsey to ensure that the island continues to be covered by an ambulance service during the current industrial action. The strike involves some Ambulance Service staff and has threatened to place the island's community in a critical situation.

Not all of the ambulance staff are involved in industrial action and those crew members are continuing to provide a service alongside the urgent cover provided by the St John's Ambulance Service. Talks are being held later today between the States and the Alderney Ambulance Service to consider how the situation can be resolved.

The Alderney Ambulance Service is an independent charity funded principally by subscriptions. It is not owned or contracted by the States of Alderney but the States does provide an annual grant to support the delivery of the service.
