South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) was established as a
mobile healthcare provider in 2006. We serve an area of approximately 3,550 square miles,
spanning the counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Hampshire and Oxfordshire.
We are here to provide excellent patient care to a resident population of more than four
million people and the millions more visitors we receive every year.
Our primary purpose is to respond to 999 emergency calls and to get the right treatment to
patients with life-threatening conditions, serious injury or illnesses, as quickly as possible.
In addition, we provide pre-arranged transport for our patients, with medical needs, to and from the treatment centres via our Patient Transport Service (PTS). We also offer a number of services through our commercial division, including First Aid training, community equipment service, GP out of hours and logistics services.
