The London Ambulance Service

The London Ambulance Service have coproduced 3 new resources to support people with a learning disability or autistic people when using the ambulance service. These resources are designed to help to know what to expect when an ambulance comes to see you including assessments we may ask to complete, the inside of an ambulance and demystifying common concerns.

Here is a short video which introduces travelling to the hospital in an ambulance: 

We hope this information can be used proactively and in the event of needing an ambulance by people with a learning disability, autistic people and those that support them. By increasing understanding, reducing anxiety and supporting engagement with the service, the resources hope to reduce barriers to accessing the service and promote people getting the help they need with their health in a timely way.
