Emergency Services Connectivity

The existing emergency and urgent care eco-system in the UK is incredibly complex. It suffers from a reliance on poor connectivity and ageing technology, which present a significant challenge to health providers, and a significant risk to patients. A major upgrade programme – the Ambulance Radio Programme as a part of a new 4G-based Emergency Services Network – is now underway, as part of plans to transform connectivity in the future.

The Health Living Lab at Westcott is being developed to help drive further evolution (enabled by 5G connectivity over satellite and terrestrial comms) and improvement of this eco-system. Designed jointly by the Satellite Applications Catapult and NHS Arden & GEM CSU, it will be a unique and neutral demonstration space for the development of new services and capabilities for ambulances, paramedics and the care pathways they support.


The Living Lab will facilitate both collaboration and innovation between ambulance trusts, clinicians, commissioners, and technology providers that will positively impact the speed and effectiveness of the diagnosis, treatment and care of patients.

It will host demonstrator ambulances showcasing a range of future-proof connectivity solutions, workshop and co-creation space, simulation facilities and a showcase of hardware and software options.

These facilities will enable the Lab to present a selection of cost-effective and appropriately redesigned care pathways including stroke and frailty with a focus on implementation and rollout and the long-term improvement of the existing eco-system.
