West Midlands Ambulance Service is doing everything it can to keep staff safe and protect the people of the West Midlands during the coronavirus pandemic.
Our staff have some of the best protective equipment available including powered respirators. It does mean that if you do call 999, our front-line ambulance staff may arrive wearing protective equipment, so please don’t be alarmed, it’s for everyone’s safety.
As an ambulance service, all of our staff are working exceptionally hard to continue to provide the best care and save as many lives as possible.
There is lots of misinformation doing the rounds about coronavirus, so it’s really important that you get your information from a trusted source. Keep up-to-date by visiting the coronavirus pages on the NHS website.
