Our Strategic Objective:
“Provide a well governed, patient focused, service that offers value for money and is delivered through a motivated workforce.”
Key Deliverables for 2022/23:
- Deliver the service requirements of the NARU contract and improve clinical outcomes
- Ensure robust corporate governance and financial efficiency for NARU and its services
- Maintain an effective NARU workforce through professional support and development
- Support the ambulance sector to maintain effective emergency preparedness arrangements
Included within the department’s functions is the Central Management Team (CMT) which supports the director to manage the day-to-day activities of NARU. The CMT comprises the Director (acting as Chair) and the three other department heads.
Our comprehensive work programme will make a vital contribution to the Ambulance Service’s ability to deal with the risks contained in the National Risk Register.
Fundamentally, we will succeed in our strategic aim to support the NHS Ambulance Service to maintain an effective and consistent response to high-risk or complex emergencies improving clinical outcomes.Keith Prior, National Director, NARU
