Welcome to the Smart Ambulance: European Procurers Platform (SAEPP) website.
The Smart Ambulance: European Procurers Platform (SAEPP) project is comprised of a group of European ambulance services, academic healthcare research bodies, hospitals and other healthcare organisations who have formed a consortium with the objective of designing and building a 21st century prototype emergency ambulance vehicle which will allow frontline clinicians to provide more high-level patient care on-scene and thus help reduce the number of unnecessary hospital transports currently made by ambulance services across the Euro-Zone.
It is our goal to work together as a pan-European partnership to create a mobile treatment unit, not only capable of combined patient transport and treatment, but which will also create a patient treatment unit which will maximise space, minimise the risk of infection, reduce hospital admissions and handover times, decrease overall costs and, most importantly, offer an overall safer environment for patients and clinicians alike.
By browsing this website you will be able to learn more about our project, find an in-depth description of how it first evolved, what we aim to achieve, who is involved, and more about the consultation stage of the process, which we are currently engaged in.
Whether you are directly involved in ambulance delivery or whether you are simply a member of the public interested in ambulance care we welcome your views and opinions so please visit our Comments Section and give us your feedback.
