Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant

NEAS is an Armed Forces Covenant Employer and as such is committed to ensuring that those who serve or who have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly.

About us

The North East Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (NEAS) operates across Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, County Durham, Darlington and Teesside. We provide an Unscheduled Care Service to respond to emergency calls, and a Scheduled Care service which provides pre-planned non-emergency transport for patients in the region.

Since 2013 we have delivered the NHS 111 service for the region to provide urgent medical help and advice, and we have been able to demonstrate how this service can run alongside the 999 service to provide a seamless access point for patients.
