TVAA adopts new operating model

The UK’s Thames Valley Air Ambulance (TVAA) has announced that it will take responsibility for its clinical governance and provide an expansion to the provision of advanced critical care across the Thames Valley. The HEMS charity will also move to directly employ its medical crews, rather than second them from the National Health Service.

Amanda McLean, CEO TVAA explained: “Thanks to the generous support TVAA receive from the public, we are now in a position to move to a new operating model and assume responsibility for clinical governance and the delivery of advanced critical care across the Thames Valley. We will continue to work in close collaboration with [the South Central Ambulance Service] to deliver the highest level of care to patients by bringing the expertise of the hospital to the roadside to enhance patient outcomes.”

Dr Syed Masud, medical director for TVAA, said: “TVAA are delighted to have been able to reach this point and are confident that this future model and our close working relationship with SCAS will allow us to continue to enhance the critical care service to meet the need of the public that we serve.”
