What roles are ambulance services playing in the transformation of the health and care systems across Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and England?
This podcast from the NHS Confederation and the Association of Ambulance Chief Executives explores how integration is playing out across the four home nations, with a particular focus on the role ambulance services are playing.
The 17-minute discussion, hosted by Heather Moorhead, Director of the Northern Ireland Confederation for Health and Social Care, hears how all four countries are different but share the same goals and how ambulance services, which often transcend local health economy footprints, are able to give a different perspective to integration.
In the podcast we hear from:
- Jason Killens, Chief Executive of the Welsh Ambulance Service NHS Trust
- Michael Bloomfield, Chief Executive of the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service
- Rod Barnes, Chief Executive of Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust
- Claire Pearce, Director of Care Quality and Strategic Development at the Scottish Ambulance Service
It is very much about investing in relationships and building trust so the opportunity for genuine partnerships are created.
