We will achieve our vision by:

  • helping people access appropriate care by assessing individual needs and directing people to the most relevant service
  • dispatching emergency clinicians to treat people with life-threatening injuries or conditions and providing specialist care whilst transporting those people to the most appropriate healthcare facility
  • enabling people to stay safe and well in their own communities by providing mobile healthcare closer to home
  • supporting whole system healthcare by working with partner organisations to assess needs and plan care for local communities and individual needs.
