Evesham ambulance station goes up for sale
5:12pm Wednesday 30th January 2013 in News
EVESHAM ambulance station will be going up for sale next week with a price tag of £600,000.
The sale of the station, in Davies Road, is part of West Midlands Ambulance Service’s Make Ready reorganisation.
This programme will see the creation of two fleet maintenance hubs where teams of ambulance fleet assistants prepare, service and maintain the fleet of ambulances.
The hubs are being created through the refurbishment of two traditional ambulance stations in Spetchley Road, Worcester and Lickey End, near Bromsgrove.
The rest of the county’s stations are due to be sold and replaced by a new network of community ambulance stations which will be leased rather than owned.
The service says the new stations will be lower-maintenance, with resultant lower running costs, There will also be more of them.
Evesham’s new community ambulance station will be based within the town at an address to be confirmed in due course.
