    About Embrace
    Each year our specialist teams of nurses, advanced nurse practitioners, doctors and drivers transfer more than 2,000 infants and children by road ambulances and fixed wing aircraft.

    We’re based just off the M1 at Junction 37 for easy access to the roads and have specialist teams working from there who mobilise quickly to get to our patients fast.

    Our call handling team uses a state of the art call conferencing system allowing Embrace clinicians to provide clinical advice, liaise with other clinical specialists, co-ordinate transfers and find out where available beds are throughout the country.

    In July 2014 Embrace became one of only six organisations outside the USA to gain accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Transport Systems (CAMTS) board for ground, fixed wing and rotor wing transport of critically ill babies and children.
