DocGo, a provider of last-mile mobile health services, announced today that its UK-based subsidiary, Ambulnz Community Partners, is adding six electric ambulances to their fleet. Through a partnership with Stockport NHS Foundation Trust, the first of these electric ambulances went into operational service this month. Non-emergency patients can now be transported to and from Stepping Hill Hospital in the environmentally friendly vehicle. Plans to operationalize the full fleet of electric ambulances are underway.

The new community ambulance will help Stockport NHS Foundation Trust towards the targets of its Green Plan introduced in 2022, which includes ambitions for a 75% cut in business travel emissions by 2030, and a reduction of overall greenhouse emissions of 85% by 2032.

The new vehicle has the same capabilities as diesel community ambulances and a range of approximately 120 miles before it needs recharging. Electric ambulances also cost less to run and maintain, meaning better long-term value for the health service.

Proudly owned by DocGo, Ambulnz Community Partners is a growing network of local community ambulance services providing high-quality urgent and planned care. Their fleet will soon be approximately 8% all-electric.

DocGo’s UK operations include 15 locations, about 711 operational staff members, and approximately 348 ambulances. In 2022, DocGo introduced the first ever all-electric ambulance in the United States, as part of its plan to continue expanding their environmentally friendly medical transport offerings.
