Ducato fleet aids Hereford healthcare

HEREFORD and Worcester Ambulance Service NHS Trust has taken delivery of 31 Fiat Ducato ambulances. Altered by conversion company Devon, 18 of the 2.5 litre diesel-engined Ducatos are on a three-year contract with the Dudley Group of Hospitals NHS Trust and are fitted with two seats in the cab and nine seats for patients when not fitted with a stretcher.

The remaining 13 operate within the Service's 1,515-square-mile area and have a driver's seat and seats for six people and a stretcher. All have the Unwin clamping system for wheelchairs and a Rolac ramp at the rear for ease of access for wheelchairs and stretcher cases. Walking patients' access is via a sliding door.
