There are also a variety of Immediate Care schemes that operate within the area. Whilst remaining financially independent the charities recognised 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.
