Powys County Councillors are set to vote on a motion supporting the Air Ambulance at Welshpool.

Powys County Councillors are set to vote on a motion to keep the Air Ambulance base at Welshpool at their next full council meeting on the 13th October 2022.

The motion, proposed by Leader of Plaid Cymru in Powys, Elwyn Vaughan, would ask the Welsh Air Ambulance charity to keep the Air Ambulance base at Welshpool and look into the option of extending the hours of service.

The full text of the motion is:

The air ambulance has provided an essential and valuable service to Mid Wales for a number of years.

The proposed transfer of the base from Welshpool is therefore a retrograde step and one of great concern to our residents.

It is imperative that an equally efficient service that takes into consideration the rurality of the area, the difficulty of getting an ordinary ambulance and fewer health options is kept

We therefore call on the air ambulance base to be kept at Welshpool and to look into the option of extending the hours of service.
