The IAA was formed in January 2012 to represent the interests of independent ambulance providers who are registered with the Care Quality Commission. We are formally recognised by Government, the NHS, the Departments of Health & Transport, and all commissioners as the leading voice of the sector.

Our members provide event medical coverage across the country, patient transport services across the country, repatriation care, specialist bariatric and mental health transport and, increasingly, blue light accident and emergency ambulance teams.

Registration with the CQC guarantees to event organisers, NHS commissioners and patients the highest quality standards.

Our providers may be diverse - from small and local to large and nationwide - but they all have one guiding principle: the care, well-being and safety of their patients.
