Welcome to The Room, where children and young people can get information all about the Welsh Ambulance Service.
Through October, we are running a ‘Shoctober’ campaign. This is for primary school children and there is lots of games and information here to help you learn about life saving skills.
The Welsh Ambulance Service responds to accidents and emergencies. We also transport some patients to and from hospital appointments.
We cover the whole of Wales 24 hours a day, every day and try to give the best care possible to all of our patients.
NHS Direct Wales is also part of the Ambulance service. They give health advice and information to people on the telephone and through the website www.nhsdirect.wales.nhs.uk.
Inside ‘The Room’ you can find out what is an emergency and when you should call 999, what different career opportunities are available in the ambulance service.The Welsh Ambulance Service has also developed an interactive virtual tour that helps people better understand the role of frontline crews and the life-saving equipment they use.Take a 360 degree look around an ambulance, a Clinical Contact Centre, where 999 calls are received and vehicles are dispatched, as well as the Area Ambulance Centre where the Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) are based.
