The London Ambulance Service

Header_Logo-templante-lasThe London Ambulance Service is the busiest emergency ambulance service in the UK to provide healthcare that is free to patients at the time they receive it. The London Ambulance Service is also the only London-wide NHS trust.

The London Ambulance Service has over 4,500 staff, who work across a wide range of roles based in 70 ambulance stations. The London Ambulance Service serves more than seven million people who live and work in the London area.

The main role is to respond to emergency 999 calls, providing medical care to patients across the capital, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The London Ambulance Service has responded to many major incidents in London, the most notable in recent years being the bombings on 7 July 2005 and the Paddington train crash.

During a large-scale incident of this nature, they work closely with other emergency services and organisations in London to save lives.

The responsibilities include:

  • putting hospitals in London on alert to receive patients;
  • setting up a system at the scene for prioritising and treating patients based on their medical needs;
  • treating, stabilising and caring for people who are injured; and
  • taking patients who need further treatment to hospital.

The London Ambulance Service operates over an area of approximately 620 square miles, from Heathrow in the west to Upminster in the east, and from Enfield in the north to Purley in the south.
