Rehan Azam, GMB National Secretary, said:
"The findings of the NAO report come as no surprise – GMB has been banging this drum for years.
"Our ambulance services are severely underfunded and over-stretched after years of Tory neglect have left them close to breaking point – today now it seems the Goverment's own watchdog agrees.
"As demand for ambulances grows stronger with each passing year, our paramedic members need the proper support to carry out the job they love.
"This is just another example of the health service plunging into crisis thanks to the Conservatives’ manipulative drive towards privatisation.
"And moving the goal posts by changing target times won't change that."
