Welcome to South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS)

We provide traditional 999 emergency services, as well as non-emergency patient transport services, NHS 111 services and logistics, commercial and training services across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire to a population of over 4 million people.

Demand for our services is increasing every year and in the last 12 months we took on average over 1,800 emergency 999 calls every day, over 3,400 daily calls to NHS 111 and undertook over half a million patient transport journeys.

I am incredibly proud to lead an organisation where staff and volunteers continue to deliver high standards of patient care and help ensure we deliver safe, effective and responsive services in sometimes challenging circumstances.
