A consultation on the future of ambulance service in the Dales has drawn to a close.

East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) has proposed the closure of 16 ambulance stations across the county, including Bakewell and Matlock in a bid to save cash.

The service has also proposed the creation of two ‘super stations’ at Chesterfield and Derby.

The EMAS Trust Board will hold a meeting on Thursday, January 10, to review the report which will detail the feedback received during the consultation.

The final plans will be reviewed at a meeting on Monday, January 28.

Any decision reached at the meeting will be relayed to the public via the EMAS website,, Twitter account @EMASNHSTrust
