Ambulance Strategy

The Isle of Wight Ambulance Service (IWAS) is part of the Isle of Wight NHS Trust. Our service encompasses the Emergency Operations Centre, Frontline Operations, Patient Transport Service, Education and Training, and Emergency Preparedness, Resilience and Response for an Island population of around 140,000 people.

We have been working in partnership with South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) since 2018 to help improve the clinical and financial sustainability of our services.

This strategy sets out our vision, focusing on improving the service we deliver to the whole community. As part of our ongoing strategy we aim to engage with a variety of stakeholders including, but not limited to, our community, our service users, our staff, commissioners of our services, along with colleagues from SCAS and partners of our Trust.
