Private ambulances: Blue Light insurance protection

Tuesday 29th August
Private ambulances: Blue Light insurance protection

Private ambulance crews are in high demand. The NHS is booking them up to a year in advance to be available to respond to emergency incidents such as road traffic accidents and stroke patients.

High risk work 

Many private ambulances face unprecedented pressures as they work hard to support the NHS crews to meet response times, particularly for critically ill patients. Dealing with NHS pressures is more demanding than traditional private ambulance public events, and the risks are higher. Responding to patients facing ambulance delays, transporting the deceased, and caring for patients in emergency vehicles outside hospitals are common issues.
