What do you think when you think of the Northwest Ambulance Service? Your answer is probably blue lights and large yellow vehicles. However the service does so much more, such as:

  • They receive around approximately 1.7 million emergency calls and respond to over 1 million emergency incidents each year.
  • They make more than 1.3 million patient journeys every year (for those who require non-emergency transport to and from healthcare appointments).
  • They deliver the NHS 111 service across the region for people who need medical help or advice, handling around 3.6 million calls every year.
  • Employ around 7,074 staff in over 300 different roles.
  • More than 1,000 people volunteer as community first responders, volunteer car drivers or patient and public panel members
