East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EMAS) provides emergency 999 and urgent care for the 4.8 million people within Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Rutland, Lincolnshire (including North and North East Lincolnshire), Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire.
We employ circa 3,290 staff at more than 70 locations, including two control rooms at Nottingham and Lincoln - the largest staff group are those who provide accident and emergency responses to 999 calls.
Our budgeted income for 2017/2018 is £158.5 million.
We operate a fleet of around 555 vehicles including emergency ambulances and fast response cars. We also provide a patient transport service in Derbyshire.
Every day we receive around 2,500 calls from members of the public calling 999 - this is the equivalent of receiving a 999 call every 35 seconds of every day.
During 2016/17 we received 938,837 emergency and urgent calls to our emergency operations centre, and dispatched ambulance clinicians to 653,215 incidents.
