When crisis strikes, we're first on the scene

Our services are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) in England and we apply the same standards to our service delivery across the whole of the UK. Our fleet and equipment is comparable with those deployed by NHS services.

We're a close-knit team united by one goal - to save lives.

This role might be for you if
