Ambulance commissioning in Wales is a collaborative process underpinned by a national collaborative commissioning quality and delivery framework. All seven Health Boards have signed up to the framework and work together through the Emergency Ambulance Service Committee (EASC)
Emergency Ambulance services in Wales are provided by a single national organisation – Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust (WAST). WAST is required to meet a number of quality standards, core financial requirements and outcome indicators.
Information about EASC is available from the EASC website at http://www.wales.nhs.uk/easc/home
