North East Ambulance Service

The North East Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (NEAS) operates across Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, County Durham, Darlington and Teesside. We provide an Emergency Care Service to respond to 999 calls, and a Patient Transport Service (PTS) which provides pre-planned non-emergency transport for patients in the region.


Since 2013 we have delivered the NHS 111 service for the region to provide urgent medical help and advice, and we have been able to demonstrate how this service can run alongside the 999 service to provide a seamless access point for patients.


We also deliver specialist response services through our Hazardous Area Response Team (HART). HART units are made up of specially trained paramedics who deal with major incidents. Our front line services are delivered from 61 stations across the North East region.


We became a Foundation Trust in November 2011 and are one of ten ambulance services in England, covering an area of around 3,230 square miles.  We serve a population of more than 2.71 million people and employ more than 2,500 staff including our valued volunteers.
