Some of the cast from the previous Ambulance series, filmed in the North West

Prime-time documentary series coming to the North East

BBC Ambulance filming begins this week

A prime-time documentary series will follow our frontline staff as they provide vital emergency care in the North East.

‘Ambulance’, the BBC’s BAFTA-award winning series, has chosen the North East for its latest series. Filming will take place across the North East from January until April 2022. 

Each episode follows the shifts of the call-handlers and ambulance dispatchers in real time as they make decisions in the highly pressurised environment of the control room, about who should get care and when. Once the decision is made and the job is dispatched cameras follow the ambulance crews as they race to provide emergency care and save lives on the ground.

Any patients and their families filmed as part of the documentary will go through a thorough consent process. If you come into contact with the film crew as part of the filming process, you will be asked for your consent to appear in the series. If you or one of your loved ones has been filmed please do not hesitate to contact the production team directly with any questions via email to: 

If you would like to speak to us in relation to the filming process, please email 

NEAS Chief Executive Helen Ray said: “Working for the ambulance service is so much more than a job and I’m sure the dedication and commitment from each and every member of team NEAS will shine through every episode as they strive to give the best quality care to every patient they come into contact with. 

“I hope it also serves to inspire our community, and encourages people living within the North East to consider joining our service.”
