High Dependency Ambulances (HDU)
Local Medical Services' High Dependency Service is provided to both NHS and private customers throughout the UK 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. All our HDU ambulances are equipped to A&E standard; which includes heart monitors with ECG capabilities, SATs monitors, automated external defibrillators, suction units, carry chairs, piped O2 and Entonox.
Our vehicles are manned as standard by a Ambulance Technician and a Emergency Care Assistant (ECA) but can be manned with a Emergency Care Assistant and a Paramedic as required by our clients.
Our High Dependency service is not an alternative emergency service but provides the capability to transfer patients between hospitals and other medical facilities whilst maintaining care and monitoring.
