Vision 2015 provides a framework of goals, action statements and performance indicators linked to four key areas - service delivery, our people, leadership and community.
Defining the road ahead - Service Delivery Model (2008-15)
Defining the road ahead presents a new vision for SA Ambulance Service, which outlines a framework for a future service delivery model designed to meet increasing demands for ambulance services.
This is the reform agenda currently being driven by SA Ambulance Service.
Defining the road ahead contains a number of key initiatives which will be implemented with the objective of putting SA Ambulance Service at the frontline of alternative health service options. It aims to reduce the traditional conveyance of patients to hospital emergency departments (EDs) via ambulance and move to treat more patients in their home and surrounds.
