There’s an Emergency in the Blue Lights Sector

There are more threats to your sector than ever. So you might have to change the way you work.
 

There’s extra pressure on your services. You need to be able to do more without extra resources.

The economy needs to grow, and grow clean. There’s pressure on you to be green.

People, goods, services, and jobs are all more mobile. Your services need to be able to keep up. 

Delivering better services requires working with data but GDPR governs what you can do.

More and More, Less and Less.

There are typically 10.7 million calls and NHS 111 transfers to the ambulance service in England each year

6.6 million incidents resulted in face-to-face attendance by the albulance service in England in 2017
