At Air Ambulance Kent Surrey Sussex, we continually strive to improve the quality of the service we provide to our patients.
Our research and innovation programme helps us to adopt evidence-based practice, explore operational concepts and undertake meaningful service improvements.
We collaborate with other emergency services in the UK and around the world to share knowledge and learn from others, aiming to inform global improvements in pre-hospital care.
