Ambulance comms roll-out gathers pace

The UK Ambulance Radio Programme has announced that London Ambulance Service NHS Trust has gone live with its new Mobile Data and Vehicle Solution.

According to a statement, roll-out of the technology has taken place across London Ambulance’s fleet of 800 ambulances and response vehicles. It includes a new national mobilisation application – including satellite navigation functionality -, as well as new in-vehicle hardware replacing legacy mobile data terminals.

The news follows an announcement made by the Ambulance Radio Programme at the end of last year that just under 1,000 MDVS installations had taken place across the country up until that point.

Discussing this at the time, a spokesperson for the organisation said: “This marks a major achievement for ARP’s national deployment of MDVS. The MDVS programme is now live across six trusts. This is a reflection of all the hard work, continuous learning and collaborative efforts between ARP, the trusts and our suppliers.”

Commenting on the London roll-out, ARP director, Duncan Bray, said: “It’s been great to work closely with the team in London Ambulance. We installed and integrated into 60 brand new London ambulances before Christmas, and now the solution is being installed onto the remaining fleet.
