London Ambulance Service NHS Trust is the busiest emergency ambulance service in the UK with over 5,000 staff who works across a wide range of roles. Our service operates over an area of approximately 620 square miles across London based in 70 ambulance stations. 

 

We serve more than eight million people who live and work in the London area. Our main role is to respond to emergency 999 calls, getting medical help to patients who have serious or life-threatening injuries or illnesses as quickly as possible.

 

However, many of our patients have less serious illnesses or injuries, and do not need to be sent an ambulance on blue lights and sirens. Often these patients will receive more appropriate care somewhere other than at hospital and so we provide a range of care to them, recognising that many have complex problems or long-term medical conditions. We also provide clinical assessments over the phone to more callers with less serious illnesses and injuries. 

 

As an integral part of the NHS in London, we work closely with hospitals and other healthcare professionals, as well as with other emergency services. We are also central to planning for, and responding to, large-scale events or major incidents in the capital. 

 

In everything we do, we are Respectful, Professional, Innovative and Collaborative. 

 

Respectful - Caring for our Patients and each other with compassion and empathy. Championing quality and diversity. Acting fairly.

 

Professional - Acting with honesty and integrity. Aspiring to clinical, technical and managerial excellence. Leading by example. Being accountable and outcomes orientated.

 

Innovative - Thinking creatively. Driving value and sustainable change. Harnessing technology and new ways of working. Taking courageous decisions.

 

Collaborative: Listening and learning from each other. Working with partners. Being open and transparent. Building trust.
