Welcome

The IAA was formed in January 2012 to represent the interests of independent ambulance providers who are registered with the Care Quality Commission. A ‘not for profit’ body our core values are to work in a manner that is brave, decent and independent.

We are formally recognised by Government, the NHS, the Departments of Health & Transport, and media outlets being as the voice of the independent ambulance sector.

Our providers are diverse – from small and local to large and nationwide – but they all have one guiding principle: the care, well-being and safety of their patients. Our Members abide by a Code of Conduct, a copy of which is available on request.

As an organisation we fully support the regulation of those providing patient care and transportation; in England this is registration with the Care Quality Commission, which guarantees to event organisers, NHS Commissioners and patients the highest quality standards.
