Emergency ambulance services are provided by the regional Health Boards in their respective regions. As well as providing pre-hospital emergency medical care and transportation of the seriously ill and injured to hospital, ambulances are also used to transport patients between hospitals for urgent or planned treatment and for more routine transport of patients to clinics and day care centres.
