"In England, 10 regionally based ambulance trusts provide urgent and emergency healthcare, with separate arrangements for the Isle of Wight. Trusts may also provide a range of other services, such as patient transport and NHS 111. In 2015-16, these services cost about £2.2 billion, of which £1.78 billion was for urgent and emergency services. In 2015-16, the ambulance service received 9.4 million urgent or emergency calls and 1.3 million transfers from NHS 111, which together resulted in 6.6 million face-to-face attendances."
