London Ambulance Service is working with Ambulance Receiving Centres (ARCs) in the North East London Clinical Commissioning Group (NELCCG) area to improve capacity and reduce ambulance handover times, to allow ambulances to respond to incoming calls. The ARCs provide additional space within the emergency departments for patients to be assessed for the appropriate treatment or potential admission. In addition, NELCCG operates an Emergency Care Hub with London Ambulance Service to facilitate support between sites through the redirection of ambulances during surges in demand.
