Description:
The purpose of this report is to present the findings and recommendations of the emergency service baseline and capacity review of the National Ambulance Service of Ireland (NAS). The review was commissioned by the Health Service Executive (HSE) on behalf of NAS. The overall purpose of the review was to determine the underlying capacity required to deliver the standards for response performance across Ireland. The review and this report were completed by Lightfoot Solutions UK Limited (Lightfoot). Lightfoot has extensive experience, both in the UK and internationally, of helping ambulance services and stakeholders to develop their strategic direction so that it aligns with that of the wider health economy. In this context, Lightfoot advocates a ‘whole system’ approach to the delivery of unscheduled care and has worked extensively with many healthcare organisations including hospitals, commissioning bodies and ambulance services. A draft report was first prepared on the 18th February 2015 and the executive summary was published by the HSE. Following the draft report Lightfoot were commissioned to conduct more in depth modelling and set out the deployment points and resource requirements at a granular level. In conducting this further modelling we also introduced specific modelling around a dual provision scenario in which both NAS and DFB continue to provide resources within the Dublin and Wicklow dispatch area. In this dual provision scenario it is assumed that Dublin Fire Brigade continue to provide 12, 24 hours (24/7) Double Crew Ambulances (DCAs).
