Quality assurance

We provide nationally accredited, paramedic-led training and bespoke courses. Many of our courses, including all of our First Aid at Work courses are Ofqual regulated qualifications, which means you receive a nationally recognised Level 2 or Level 3 Award.  

We reinvest

The money that we raise through training at North East Ambulance Service is reinvested back into our ambulances and crews. Each year this generates the equivalent of:

  •   A fully equipped rapid response vehicle;
  •   A paramedic;
  •   An ambulance care assistant;
  •   A call handler in our operations centre; and
  •   A dispatch officer in our operations centre.

Working with us really does make a difference and enables us to invest more into patient care.

Key account management support

We can provide key account management support. From your initial call or query right through to account management and training, we ensure you receive a high quality service throughout. Our team works with you to establish your training requirements, to deliver relevant training, ensuring that your organisation is prepared for any medical incidents and that you are compliant with UK safety regulations.
