Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust
Yorkshire Air Ambulance’s longest standing partner is the Yorkshire Ambulance Service NHS Trust (YAS) who have supported our operations since our inception on 25th October 2000.
YAS supports us in a number of ways, through medical guidance and advice, medical supplies, training and the secondment of our Paramedics. This means that all the YAA Paramedics are actually employed by YAS and seconded to us for a specific period of time, although we currently also have five full time members of our crew.
To become a Paramedic with the YAA, recruits have to have a certain level of training and currently work within YAS. Recruitment only happens around every three years and the YAA Paramedic positions are extremely sought after within YAS. There is a challenging recruitment process to get through also.
