Additional vehicles to respond to lower priority calls
Posted on: 07/12/2018
Additional vehicles targeted at lower priority calls will begin to respond to patients in the coming weeks following investment by South East Coast Ambulance Service, (SECAmb).
The Non-Emergency Transport (NET) vehicles, which will complement the Trust’s emergency fleet, will begin to be rolled out across SECAmb’s region this month. A total of 30 Fiat ambulances are being refurbished and will be delivered, in a phased approach, to operational sites across the region at a rate of at least three a week.
All the vehicles are expected to be on the road by the end of February 2019 and are part of SECAmb’s plans to improve its response to patients not in a serious or life-threatening condition.
