East Midlands Ambulance Service

East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EMAS) provides emergency 999, urgent care services for the 4.8 million people within Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Rutland, Lincolnshire (including North and North East Lincolnshire), Northamptonshire and Nottinghamshire. We also provide Patient Transport Services in north and north east Lincolnshire and parts of Nottinghamshire. We employ over 2,700 staff at more than 70 locations, including two control rooms at Nottingham and Lincoln, with the largest staff group being accident and emergency personnel. Our accident and emergency crews respond to over 616,200 emergency calls during 2012/13. Our Community Paramedics and Emergency Care Practitioners have enhanced skills, meaning that more and more people can be treated in their own homes if a hospital visit is not required. We are continuously delivering improvements in the treatment of patients, use of technology and opportunities for staff as we move forward to provide high-quality care and to build on the significant advances made in recent years.
