On a short-term basis, we work collaboratively with many NHS Ambulance Trusts and Foundation Trusts. We add capacity to relieve A&E pressure, build seasonal resilience, and to ensure the most efficient movement of patients.
On a long-term basis, we work alongside existing services to provide transport for discharged patients from hospital, outpatient clinics, and specialist clinics.
- dedicated discharge ambulances to operate during peak times
- help with the avoidance of unnecessary hospital admissions
- additional staff to assist in A&E with bay cleaning, cohorting patients, basic dressings, and observations
