National Ambulance Sector Office (NASO)

New Zealand’s ambulance service provides emergency care, no matter where you are in New Zealand.


NASO provides strategic leadership for the road and air ambulance sectors to help ensure New Zealanders have access to emergency care when they need it.

It is focused on commissioning emergency ambulance services to enable safe, effective, sustainable and more equitable health outcomes for all New Zealanders.

NASO works with ambulance service providers, DHBs and other government and health organisations to commission ambulance services.

NASO works on behalf of the Ministry of Health and ACC, which jointly fund emergency ambulance services.
