Providing treatment in our cities and towns

Our NTE programme offers safe treatment spaces in city or town centre environments, particularly on Friday and Saturday nights. These are typically the times when the impact from alcohol intoxication is most serious. Our teams are able to ensure this type of patient receives prompt care and treatment. 


By providing dedicated treatment centres in towns and cities, our aim is to reduce the impact on local NHS hospitals and ambulance resources. In those cases where a patient does need to go to hospital, it is often a St John Ambulance crew based at the treatment centre who will take them.
