The third edition of the Emergency Ambulance Response Driver’s Handbook is the essential resource for all professional drivers of ambulances. Since the publication of the second edition in 2014, the book has been comprehensively reviewed by a team of healthcare professionals and brought up to date with the newest regulations and best practice advice.
The book is designed to serve as both an introductory resource for self-learning or alongside a training course as well as a text which can refresh and enhance your existing knowledge. It aims to provide drivers with a safe and effective basis for their driving practice and to help minimise any risk to ambulance drivers, passengers and other road users.
With an additional four chapters, this book forms a vital part of the training of any driver of emergency response vehicles.

•    Learning outcomes at the beginning of each chapter
•    Up-to-date legislation and current guidance
•    New chapters on Driving Commentary, Re-prioritisation of Calls, Navigation and Smart Motorways
