Ambulance Radio Programme
Telent has been awarded a major contract to upgrade the mobile communications devices in 6,500 ambulances across all NHS Ambulance Trusts in England and Wales. The contract, which is managed by the NHS Ambulance Radio Programme (ARP), will allow for a more effective and reliable mobilisation communications platform, improving the ability to meet challenging response times for frontline ambulance clinicians during emergencies.
Replacing the existing hardware solution with new and improved future proofed solutions, Telent and ARP will deliver the Mobile Data Vehicle Solution (MDVS) programme. Providing a new Mobile Data Terminal (MDT) solution for ambulance vehicles, Telent will install and support smart vehicle routers and specially programmed and ruggedized Windows tablets. This solution will enable the in-vehicle communication and capability needed for the National Mobilisation Application (NMA), a standard platform for control rooms to communicate with ambulances.
