By 2021, all St John ambulances will be double crewed, supported by a network of first response units. This is to improve clinical outcomes for patients, making sure they have an ambulance clinician with them on the way to the hospital. Radio assurance is another current project that will extend radio coverage into rural communities.
St John Area Committees identify programmes that can improve health and wellbeing issues in their communities. St John wants to work with local experts to provide early intervention and compassionate care to vulnerable New Zealanders, helping build more resilient and connected communities.
