If patients would like to raise any concerns regarding vehicle cleanliness please contact

South Western Ambulance service is committed to providing a clean, safe environment for our patients. All our vehicles are deep cleaned every six weeks, and whenever there has been a contamination risk. We have ‘Make Ready’ teams that manage the vehicles which are taken off the road which ensures our crews always have a replacement vehicle available, so that they can continue to be operational.

Follow the links below to view the cleaning schedules for vehicles and premises:

The Trust works hard to reduce the spread of infectious diseases such as Norovirus and Clostridium Difficile by promoting effective hand hygiene and IPC measures across the Trust. This is to break the chain of infection pictured below:

Paramedics and volunteers will be offering free blood pressure checks for any visitors to the South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT) stand this week at the Devon County Show. The team will also be doing CPR demonstrations and educating the public how to act fast and help save patients who may need quick action when they become ill.
