We will announce at our Annual General Meeting today (25 September) that we are teaming up with South Central Ambulance Service NHS Trust to look at potential efficiencies through projects like joint procurement of vehicles, equipment and IT systems. London Ambulance Service and South Central Ambulance Service provide 999/111 urgent and emergency care services for 16 million people between us, and we are also committed to working more closely together and learning from each other’s best practices. London Ambulance Service Chief Executive Garrett Emmerson said: “Our patients expect and deserve the best care we can provide and that means making every £1 of tax payers’ money count. Our five year strategy is improving the way in which we provide urgent and emergency care to people who live, work or travel in London in the most cost effective way. "And we know that to keep improving, we need to partner with the wider NHS - and that’s what this partnership is all about, working with and learning from our neighbours to ensure the best care for the 16 million people who live and work across London and the South Central region.” The post Ambulance services announce new partnership to improve efficiency and share best practice appeared first on London Ambulance Service NHS Trust.
