NARU have published the latest National Ambulance Service Command & Control Guidance – which is available here.
Development of the Guidance has taken into consideration lessons identified from previous major incident and event responses across England over recent years, in addition to the best practice models across our Police and Fire & Rescue Service partners.
The aim of the Guidance is to assist the Ambulance (and the NHS) Commander in taking appropriate and consistent considerations to inform decision making, based on sound risk assessment.
The National Ambulance Command and Control Guidance represents a significant development towards enhancing the quality and capability of each Ambulance Service Provider across both national pre-planned and mutual aid requirements.
The Guidance will provide assurances to our multi-agency partners of our commitment to learn from lessons pf previous incidents and events and to ensure that the NHS, through the Ambulance Service Provider, remains an essential element of the civil protection capabilities across England.
