Jigsaw Medical is delighted to announce the opening of a new operational ambulance base in Basingstoke, Hampshire, adding to their already existing bases in Buckingham, Cheshire, Lancashire, Wales, and Yorkshire; as well as their specialised training centre in Chester.
“The set-up of the base has gone extremely well and we are delighted to be providing a fantastic service to the people of Hampshire.”
The establishment of the sixth base in Basingstoke has come as a result of increased demand in the area for front-line medical professionals. Basingstoke was a natural choice due to the superb transport links with the surrounding area.
CEO of Jigsaw, Chris Percival, commented: “The set-up of the base has gone extremely well and we are delighted to be providing a fantastic service to the people of Hampshire.”
The previous 12 months have been particularly impressive for Jigsaw Medical with multi-million- pound investment, life-saving treatment and unprecedented growth.
Jigsaw Medical have added over 45 brand new fully-kitted ambulances to the already expansive fleet as well as 8 brand new response vehicles that help supplement the ambulances clinically. Several of which will be utilised across the Basingstoke, and Hampshire area.
Director of Operations, Richard McManus added: “It’s been an eventful but ultimately extremely fruitful year for Jigsaw since last August. With over 600 clinicians successfully registering and becoming fully compliant in that period. Coupled with over £3 million invested in gold standard equipment and vehicles we have managed to amass in excess of 250,000 hours worked by the Jigsaw team.”
