DTS handed Ambulance Service brief

Manchester-based Digital Training Solutions (DTS) has been chosen by the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) to develop a new, first of its kind eLearning project designed to slash waiting times and save lives.

Currently as many as one in four patients who need hospital treatment - more than a million people each year - undergo a “hidden wait” beyond the current 8-minute target because the vehicle dispatched cannot transport them there. 

DTS’ innovative learning project puts emergency operation centre dispatchers in the driving seat of high-pressure, high-risk situations via interactive video simulations. Using DTS’s cutting-edge Near-Life technology, the online scenario-based course supports control room operations by improving decision-making skills.
