Ambulance targets 'may give patients a better response'
Target times for ambulances to reach some seriously ill patients could be lengthened, the BBC has learned.
A leaked NHS document includes plans to change the response time for those with "serious but not the most life-threatening" conditions - from eight to 19 minutes in England.
Professor Keith Willett, head of acute care at NHS England, said any changes may result in giving individual patients ''a better response''.
