Date of publication: 
Wednesday, January 19, 2011

The purpose of this report is to advise and make recommendations to the Minister for Health and Children, and the Health Service Executive (HSE), under section 8(1)j of the Health Act 2007, on the introduction of key performance indicators for national pre-hospital emergency care response times. The current absence of such indicators has been identified by the Authority as a gap in the information available in respect of the safety and quality of services. Please note that the Authority has subsequently published Version 1.1 of this document in October 2012.
