Embrace Infant & Children Yorkshire & Humber Transport Service is part of Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust. Embrace serves approximately 1.25 million children within Yorkshire & Humber (Y&H) Operational Delivery Network, providing 24 hour support for 22 hospital sites. The service, which was recently featured on BBC’s Children’s Emergency Rescue, provides clinical advice and emergency transport for critically ill newborn babies and children. Embrace also provides planned transfers and repatriations for neonates as well as a comprehensive in-utero transfer referral service. Operating a fleet of ambulances from the transport base just off the M1 motorway near Barnsley, Embrace also has access to helicopters and fixed wing aircraft to ensure equitable access to critical care when it is required.
Specialist Trainees at Embrace are provided with comprehensive education in resuscitation, stabilisation and transfer of critically ill neonates and children aiming to provide high standards of clinical care complemented by clear logical thinking, team working and crisis resource management (CRM). Simulation training is at the core of this educational programme and the key staff at Embrace have years of experience supplemented by specialist training from the team at Children’s Hospital Boston, USA and Montagu Simulation Centre.
