Ambulance budgets 'could put patients at risk' in Wales

Help

Patients could be put at risk because the Welsh Ambulance Service does not know exactly how much money it has to spend this year, it has been claimed.

BBC Wales has learned that some board members are "extremely concerned" this year's budget is still not settled.

The Liberal Democrats said it could have a knock-on effect on patients, as the service failed to meet a key target for response times for a fourth month.

The Welsh government said local health boards were responsible for funding.
