SOUTH Western Ambulance Service NHS Trust (SWAST) is seeking feedback about its service from members of the public.
The Trust wants to hear from people who have used its emergency, urgent care or patient transport services as part of its bid to become an NHS Foundation Trust.
"The public consultation runs until December 6 and we need to get as many local people as possible involved," said SWAST project spokesperson Demelza Hookway.
"This is your chance to engage in a full and frank debate about what it will mean for SWAST to become a Foundation Trust.
"Taking part in the consultation means you can have your say on SWAST's proposed governance arrangements - in other words, how we make sure that high performance and clinical quality standards continue to be met, ensure patients and staff are kept safe, and best use is made of taxpayers' money.
"All your comments are welcome."
