Sepura scores Ambulance Radio Programme extension

01 May 2024

As part of the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC)’s commitment to delivering a first-class medical emergency service, the Ambulance Radio Programme (ARP) has extended its modernisation plans by awarding the contract to Sepura to deliver the next generation of handheld mission critical communications devices for front line paramedics.

The contract covers the supply of the new SCL3 broadband hand-portable device to Ambulance Services across England. The SCL3 hand-portable device will maintain communications on the existing Airwave TETRA network as well as encompassing the benefits of broadband data and a migration path to ESN.

Designed for mission-critical use, the SCL3 addresses the need for optimum performance even in the harshest of environments and working practices of ambulance staff.
