The Great North Air Ambulance also provides advanced prehospital emergency care skills to the region, particularly around Cumbria

BASICS North West

There are also a variety of Immediate Care schemes that operate within the area. Whilst remaining financially independent the charities recognized that with the amalgamation of the county ambulance services into the North West Ambulance Service they had to form a Confederation known as BASICS NW to provide a common standard of training and response across the region.

The individual schemes are:
