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.This area covers approximately 3,554 sq miles with a residential population of over four million (please see map). On 1 March 2012, we became a foundation trust. Our emergency operations centres handle around 500,000 emergency and urgent calls each year.

Our three main functions are:

  • the accident and emergency service to respond to 999 calls
  • the 111 service for when medical help is needed fast but it’s not a 999 emergency
  • the Patient Transport Service
