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.
