Ambulances across Wales to get upgrades to technology

Posted by: Ambulance Radio Programme - Posted on:

The Welsh Ambulance Service is carrying out a £23million technology refresh on its ambulances to help improve the way information is passed between the service’s control rooms and the frontline crews delivering care to patients.

In total, around 800 ambulances will have the high-tech Mobile Data Vehicle Solution (MDVS) installed, including a new vehicle data router and tablet device.

The upgrade is expected to be completed by late spring 2024, but a dozen ambulances in Haverfordwest, Bangor, Newtown, Merthyr Tydfil and Bargoed have already had these installed to test the system and they have now responded to more than 2,000 incidents.
