Ambulance Systems Indicators (AmbSYS)

Monthly response times, transport to Emergency Department, call and incident counts

The Ambulance Systems Indicators (AmbSYS) are provided via the Strategic Data Collection Service (SDCS) by the eleven NHS ambulance services in England.

The indicators include ambulance response times; call answer times; ambulances assigned to incidents; and counts of incidents resulting in transport to an Emergency Department, or elsewhere; and incidents resolved on the scene or on the telephone.

NHS England publishes AmbSYS for each month on the second Thursday of the following month, alongside the Ambulance Clinical Outcomes.

Frequency: Monthly
