Transforming ambulance care
Smart Ambulance trials use 5G to enable consultants to video link with paramedics, for fast, accurate assessment and treatment in ambulances. This saves time and lives, while maximising precious NHS resources.
Our research estimates that 5G video conferencing could save the NHS 1.1 million hours a year.
Consultants can see more patients via video link than in person, so they can maximise their time.
The savings made from more efficient use of beds and staff can be invested elsewhere.
Patients assessed in ambulances may not need hospital treatment, saving time and money.

“The traditional medical model says that we go to the doctor when we’re ill. But Smart Ambulance brings the doctor to the patient. Working with O2 and Visionable is really helping us to move healthcare forward.”
