Welcome to the IAA
We’re the leading trade association representing UK independent ambulance providers, lobbying on behalf our Members and the sector with relevant Government Departments and key stakeholders.
We contribute to the work of several Expert Advisory Groups, including those advising NHS England and NHS Improvement, the Care Quality Commission and the Department for Transport.
The Association is the organisation the Media turn to for comment or opinion on issues affecting the sector, ensuring the voice of our Members is represented and heard.
The IAA is committed to raising and maintaining high standards in the sector, as well as representing the views of our members to healthcare policymakers.
Everything we do is guided by our values, which are to be brave, decent and independent.
Oue Members provide a range of ambulance services, from front-line 999, high dependency transfers, non-emergency patient transport, sporting events and medical repatriations.
All our Members in England are registered with the Care Quality Commission, who regulate emergency ambulance provision and non-emergency patient transport services. Our Members also abide by our Code of Conduct, adding extra assurance of the standards of care and service they provide.
