South Central Ambulance Service
South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (or SCAS for short) is part of the National Health Service (NHS). We were established on the 1 July 2006 following the merger of four ambulance trusts in the counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire
The Trust’s Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service (PTS) employs 64 Contact Centre staff based at Bicester in Oxfordshire and at Otterbourne in Hampshire.
This is in addition to 343 operational PTS staff across the four counties of Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Hampshire and 127 registered volunteer ambulance car drivers across the South Central Region.
Between April and December 2012 PTS undertook 318,029 patient journeys.
Ambulance Care Assistants (ACA) working for PTS provide transport for low to middle dependency patients to and from treatment centre appointments.
