The quality of care provided by the South Central Ambulance Service NHS Trust is to be inspected by the Chief Inspector of Hospitals next month.
Members of the public are being invited to submit their comments and share their experiences with the service.
The Care Quality Commission [CQC] will carry out their formal inspection on Monday, September 8.
Inspectors will visit the emergency operation centres where 999 calls are received and interview members of staff.
Professor Sir Mike Richards, the chief inspector, said: “We need to make sure that ambulance services are safe, caring, responsive, effective and well led.
“This inspection will provide people with a clear picture of the quality of their local ambulance service, exposing poor or mediocre service if its exists as well as highlighting where the trust provides good and excellent services.
“If you have recently needed to call out an ambulance in emergency, or have experience of using the service – we would like to hear from you.”
