Overview

SCAS ambulance responding to a 999 call

South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) was established as a mobile healthcare provider in 2006. We serve an area of approximately 3,550 square miles spanning the counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire.

We became a foundation trust on 1 March 2012. To become a member of our Trust and for more information, visit our website: http://www.southcentralambulance.nhs.uk

We provide excellent patient care to a resident population of more than four millions.

Our primary purpose is to respond to 999 emergency calls and to get the right treatment to patients with life-threatening conditions, serious injury or illnesses, as quickly as possible. We also provide pre-arranged transport for our patients with medical needs, to and from the treatment centres via our Patient Transport Service. We offer a number of services through our commercial division, including First Aid training, community equipment service, GP out of hours and logistics services.

Working with our staff, patients, partners and wider community, we are continually developing new innovative ways of improving patient outcomes and patient experience.
