PVL supplies livery to NHS Incident Response Units commissioned to WAS UK

WAS (Wietmarscher Ambulanz) is a leading German manufacturer of special vehicles and one of the largest European ambulance convertors.

WAS UK is an established supplier to NHS England, for whom it builds various types of specialist vehicles, including ambulances.

We have supplied the specialist ambulance vehicle livery on the new purpose-designed transporters that have been commissioned by the NHS Ambulance Trusts. These specialist vehicles will replace the first-generation trucks that HART teams have been operating for the last 10 years.

Bevan Group teams up with WAS UK to ensure rapid deployments of specialist ambulance crews


The highly trained Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) were established by the National Ambulance Resilience Unit (NARU), part of the Emergency Preparedness, Resilience and Response Department. Each of England’s 10 NHS Ambulance Trusts have their own HART team, giving them nationwide coverage. The teams are composed of specially recruited personnel who are trained and equipped to provide a medical response to high-risk and complex emergency situations.

WAS UK have been commissioned to build 19 transporters for these teams. They are products of a new partnership between WAS UK and Bevan Group, specifically designed to meet the NARU requirements. These new transporters are based on a 7.5-tonne DAF LF chassis which in turn carries a 6×6 Ranger Polaris off-road vehicle which is capable of carrying a driver, two paramedics and a patient on a stretcher.

WAS UK commissioned PVL to supply livery for the NHS Incident Response Units.

The livery kits for the Incident Response Unit and the Polaris Ranger were specifically designed to fit the unique shape and panels of the vehicles. Whilst the design is a standard green and yellow ambulance Battenburg, the carrier’s cab and box body are outlined with reflective materials. The design also incorporates printed reflective NHS trust branding that is specific to each end user. The Polaris Ranger’s body was accurately templated and then fitted with bespoke panels to give full coverage.

With a successful relationship now lasting over 5 years, we are proud to be an established livery supplier to WAS.
