Yorkshire Ambulance Service

Yorkshire Ambulance Service

Our services respond to 700,000 emergency 999 and urgent calls and undertake a further one million patient transport journeys per year across the region. Our NHS 111 service for less urgent calls handles 1.3m calls per year across Yorkshire and the Humber, Bassetlaw, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire. 

We also provide a region-wide major incident response and resilience planning capability, medical and first aid cover for large-scale sporting events and festivals, commercial training and fleet and logistics services across and area of over 6,000 square miles.

At the heart of our plans are our vision and mission.  These demonstrate our commitment to quality and ensuring we deliver safe, effective, caring, well-led and responsive services to the communities we serve. 

This will be achieved by developing frontline clinical skills, giving staff access to advice, technology and information to aid decision-making and ensuring that our estate and fleet guarantee that patients have timely access to services in a safe and clean environment.  The quality of our services and the care we provide to our patients will continue to be our utmost priority in the years ahead.

Our services, clinical capability and technology have improved dramatically in recent years with staff now administering many treatments at the scene of an incident which would previously only have been carried out in a hospital setting.
