Best foot forward for fallers

Exciting new scheme is first for the North East

North East healthcare providers are putting their best foot forward to reduce the impact of falls on elderly people.

Looking back at the last year at North East Ambulance Service

Public invited to Annual general meeting and Annual Members' Meeting

North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) will be reflecting back over the last year at its annual general meeting (AGM) and Annual Members' Meeting on September 27.

How we are integrating urgent and emergency care

Video launched to explain services

Our population is changing. People are living longer and have multiple long term conditions, resulting in emergency departments being unable to cope, hospitals being overwhelmed and a knock on effect for our crews and patients.

NEAS conducting groundbreaking trial on cardiac arrest patients


A study aimed at finding the best way to treat people who have suffered a cardiac arrest outside of hospital is underway in the North East.

Traditionally, adrenaline has been used - but some research suggest this could actually be harmful.

The blind study, developed by Warwick University, will see 50% of cardiac arrest patients in the North East given a salt-water solution instead.

There is a process for those patients who do not wish to participate. Further details below:
