No. These proposals are not, and never were, designed to produce financial savings. They are solely focused on improving patient outcomes.  

Our service evaluation, published in March 2022, proved that we deliver an excellent standard of care for the people of Wales. More people are surviving because of our advanced lifesaving service. Now we want to know whether we are delivering this excellent care equitably, and to as many people as possible, with our current resources. The funding we receive is from you, the people of Wales, and we have a duty to you to ensure that we are using it in the most efficient and effective way. 

The efficiency and effectiveness of the service is particularly important now as the global economy is changing dramatically, through an increase in the cost of goods and services. The Charity is expecting a very significant increase in aviation costs, potentially increasing our bill by several million pounds per annum
