Wokingham Emergency Operations Centre
A review by South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) of their 3 Emergency Operations Centres (EOCs) has concluded that Wokingham EOC staff together with the Scheduling and Information Management and Technology teams that support them will relocate to the Trust's Bicester Headquarters in July 2012. This action will improve resilience and enhance our call taking and clinical assessment capability, enabling us to provide the best possible care for our patients into the future.
There is a general move across England's ambulance services to fewer, fit for purpose EOCs. Like all Public Sector organisations SCAS needs to make financial efficiencies whilst protecting front line services and patient care.
There is currently an on-going requirement for GP Out of Hours services and for the time being this will continue from the Trust's Wokingham office site.
