ORH review will ‘renew and revitalise’ emergency ambulance services in Metro Vancouver

ORH completed a major review of emergency ambulance cover in the Metro Operations Area in British Columbia in Autumn 2015. British Columbia Emergency Health Services released an associated Action Plan on 5th February 2016, stating that ‘the review gives valuable information to achieve our goal of a more patient-centred, sustainable ambulance service’.The review projected a 42.5% increase in call volumes over six years, and identified a range of efficiency and investment measures to keep pace with the growing demand and to improve response standards, particularly to higher acuity patients.
