A three year research project by the  Yorkshire Ambulance Service Research Institute will help improve understanding of the health implications for older people who fall at home and where demands on ambulances mean they are there for a prolonged period.

The authors of Emergency Services Management: A research overview argue the police are better understood than ambulance and fire.

Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust (YAS) and the University of Sheffield School of Health and Related Research (ScHARR) have joined forces to develop and deliver ambulance-focused research to help improve patient care.
