NARU’s main aim is to support the resilience objectives of NHS England, the Association of Ambulance Chief Executives (AACE) and Ambulance Commissioners, putting patients first and the safety of staff at the forefront of any planned response.
NARU works nationally on behalf of each NHS Ambulance Trust in England to provide a coordinated approach to emergency preparedness, resilience and response.
Through central coordination, NARU enables NHS Ambulance Trusts to work together to provide a safe and reliable response to major, complex and potentially protracted incidents.
Consistency in implementation of core deliverables is essential if ambulance trusts across the country are to remain prepared and resilient to deliver an effective national response capability at all times.
NARU Compliance & Quality Assurance (CQA)
NARU oversees a number of specialised and high-risk Ambulance capabilities on behalf of NHS England and the Department of Health.
In the first quarter of 2018, NARU is making significant changes to the national standards and safe system of work that regulate these capabilities in England.
