The Welsh Ambulance Service Receives Major Investment


£6.7m Investment to Fund New & Modern Ambulances in Wales

The Welsh Ambulance Service is to benefit from up to new emergency ambulances and patient transfer vehicles following a ‘major’ £6.7million investment. 

The investment will enable the service to buy 35 new emergency ambulances and six patient transport vehicles to replace older models. The Welsh Ambulance Service currently has more than 700 vehicles, which cover an area of more than 8,000 square miles across Wales.

The new vehicles will help reduce running costs as they will be more reliable and fuel efficient, with less time taken off front line duty for repairs and maintenance. They will provide the best possible clinical environment for patients to be treated and, if necessary, transported to hospital for life-saving care and, in the case of patient transport vehicles, routine appointments.
