This information is not collected centrally. National Health Service ambulance trusts are responsible for the operational response to emergency 999 calls. NHS Improvement work with trusts to support the uptake of new technologies where there is evidence that they support good practice.

London Ambulance Service uses an intelligent conveyancing system, which is subject to regular review.
