Ambulance service to be reviewed, says Lesley Griffiths

Health minister Lesley Griffiths says she is considering setting tougher targets for the ambulance service to respond to emergency calls.

She has announced a comprehensive review of the ambulance service in Wales.

The review will look at its performance, its finance and its relationship with local health boards.

It follows recent concern about uncertainty over the service's budget and its failure to meet national targets on response times.

BBC Wales health correspondent Owain Clarke spoke to Radio Wales' Oliver Hides about what the review will look at.
