Ambulance services across the UK are required to meet 75% of life-threatening cases within 8 minutes to guarantee NHS funding and avoid fines.
Many struggle to meet this target and ageing demographics, a growing population and continual public health cuts put additional strain on resources.
Funded by Innovate UK and led by Red Ninja, the Life First Emergency Traffic Control (LiFE) project brings together the Future Cities Catapult, the Transport Systems Catapult and DYNNIQ to develop innovative solutions for reducing the time it takes emergency vehicles to reach patients in a critical condition.
Organisation: Red Ninja
How long has the project been operational: 5 years
How long the project took from concept approval to implementation: 4 years
Funding: Public sector
Total project cost: £300-500k
The Smart Sustainable Cities, a UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office initiative, brings together senior city experts and policymakers from selected European and UK cities to showcase UK best practice and provide a two-way opportunity for knowledge sharing and networking.
