Fleet & Resources

Ongoing investment in a high quality, modern fleet and equipment, helps to keep the quality of the resources and the services we provide, consistently high.

Emergency ( 999 / ICU / HDU ) Ambulances

Equipped to Paramedic Standard, in line with the NHS Trust Standard for Emergency Ambulances.  Our vehicles are also fitted with 240v Mains Inverters, Piped Oxygen and Climate Control Systems.

These vehicles would be supplied with Qualified and Experienced Ambulance Professionals including Emergency Care Assistants (Emergency Drivers), Ambulance Technicians and HCPC Registered Paramedics.

Ideal for 999 Support, Event Ambulance, High Dependency, Intensive Care and Neonatal Transfers. 

All our fleet are subject to 6 Weekly Mechanical Safety Checks and Servicing by our approved (3rd Party) Mechanics and full Deep Cleaning in line with Industry Standard Guidance in addition to the standard daily checks and routine cleaning and sanitisation.

Non Emergency (Patient Transport) Ambulances

Equipped to a High Standard, in line with the NHS Trust Standard for Non Emergency Ambulances.  These vehicles are designed to offer enhanced comfort and dignity in transit.

Allowing service users to travel in either Seated or Recumbent Positions, in Seats, Stretchers and even Wheelchairs (Ours or Theirs- Subject to Safety Safety Guidance), We can also accommodate Electric Wheelchairs. 

These Non Emergency Ambulances are ideal to move individuals to/from Appointments, Home from Hospitals, Transfers between Hospitals and Transport to/from Respite Centres, Day Centres and even Family Commitments.  

These vehicles are predominantly crewed with either One or Two Ambulance Care Assistants, with the focus on service user comfort, safety and dignity during transport.

4 x 4 Ambulances

These are Stretcher Capable 4×4 Ambulances, using Heavy Duty 4×4 and AWD Vehicles, designed to reach, treat and recover patients in hard to reach locations.  

Ideal for Event Work, accessing Off Road Motorsport or Equestrian Type Events as a primary response or for civil contingency purposes during inclement weather.

Equipped to a very high standard, these vehicles are designed to be used either as a
stand-alone resource, or in tandem with an Emergency Ambulance as part of a wider Medical Team.

Rapid Response Vehicles and ambulance cars

In Getting to an Emergency Situation Quickly, or Transferring Vital Blood, Samples or Donated Organs, Time is of the essence.  Our Rapid Response Vehicles are equipped to an extremely high standard and are operated by our ‘Emergency Driving’ Qualified Ambulance Clinicians.

These vehicles can also be used to transport low risk, physically able patients to/from their appointments, where a full ambulance might be unnecessary. 

All Terrain Vehicles

We have a range of All Terrain Vehicles, which can be used to access ill or injured individuals at events, where it may not be possible, or appropriate to get a 4×4 or full ambulance to them quickly.

Based on the Kubota RTV, our All Terrain Vehicles are provided regularly to Off Road Events, Motorsport and Festival Events, allowing ease of access at times where getting a full sized vehicle to an incident in a timely manner might be very difficult and potentially unsafe.

These vehicles are equipped to “First Response” standard, allowing for the initial treatment and stabilisation of casualties prior to more advanced assistance arriving on scene. 

Cycle Response Units

Sometimes pedal power is the most appropriate method of response, especially in areas of limited road access, or higher population density. 

Our Cycle Responders are equipped to handle a wide variety of emergency situations, with the ability to treat and discharge, or stabilise a patient until an Ambulance arrives.

These units are most often used at Running or Challenge Events and City Centre locations, giving the ability to get to patients, often faster (and safer) than a conventional vehicle, saving vital minutes in response times, giving patients the best chance of making a full recovery.

First Aid Points

Smaller events often require a static point, easily accessible, for the provision of First Aid on site.  This can be an Ambulance, a room in a building, or a temporary structure. We’re flexible to the needs and capabilities of our event clients and offer our resources as required.

 
In addition to our ambulances, we can also offer our Inflatable (AirShelta) First Aid Point, or Pop-Up Style Temporary Structures, Fully equipped to handle the wide range of Medical Incidents expected at a smaller event.  We even provide lighting and heating, if the conditions dictate.

Medical Centres

Larger events call for a larger static point.  Usually provided within a structure arranged by event organisers, a Medical Centre (rather than a First Aid Point) is usually led by a Senior Clinician, such as a Doctor and is equipped (and staffed) to handle a much wider range of medical conditions and incidents on site (rather than basic first aid). 

These facilities have been likened (by Hospital Clinicians) to their Emergency Departments (in a Field).  Our team have been praised for their ability to reduce hospital admissions, by being qualified and equipped to manage a wider range of clinical presentations on and event site.  This is largely due to the high level of experience of our senior clinicians and our robust clinical and procedural governance systems.
