We would like to clarify that whilst we do commission emergency ambulance services in Dorset from SWASFT, we do not specify the response vehicle type by location.

We have no involvement with the decision about the future of the paramedic bikes that operate in Weymouth; therefore, any suggestion that we are trying to remove the service is inaccurate.

The provider of emergency services – in this case SWASFT – would choose how to best respond to an emergency call; this would also include the type of vehicle used.
