NHS England advises that the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) currently has two mental health vehicles in operation, with one of these in the Cheshire and Merseyside area.

As part of our £150 million capital investment in mental health pathways, NWAS expects seven Mental Health Response Vehicles (MHRVs) to be in operation in two phases. Five MHRVs are expected to be delivered early in 2024, and a further two MHRVs are expected in April 2024. Three of the MHRVs are expected to be deployed in Cheshire and Merseyside.
