Overview

Emergency Ambulance

East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust was formed July 1, 2006 with the merger of ambulance services covering Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire, East Anglia and Essex.  

We are one of the largest ambulance services in the UK.  Our dedicated staff are our biggest asset and provide services in six counties, Norfolk, Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire and Suffolk which is an area of about 7,500 square miles.  It encompasses tranquil rural retreats, busy seaside resorts and large urban conurbations.

Our varied and modern services are tailor-made for each community’s differing environmental and medical needs, from cycles to fast response cars, frontline ambulances, helicopters and emergency care practitioners.

We attend more than half a million emergency calls a year, and our patient transport service takes nearly three times that amount of patients to and from routine hospital appointments.

Trust Headquarters is at Melbourn, Cambridgeshire and there are local offices in Bedford, Chelmsford and Norwich.
