Like all NHS Ambulance Services, they "went TETRA" years ago.
'FM' or 'AM' is largely irrelevant, TETRA is digital.
Either you have a receiver capable of receiving TETRA transmission or you haven't. (You probably haven't)
Either you are authorized user or you are not. (You're probably not)

You CAN detect the signals.
Base between 390 and 395. 25k channels, 12.5 kHz offset from 25kHz multiples
Mobile between 380 and 385. 25k channels, 12.5 kHz offset from 25kHz multiples.

You should be able to detect strong local signals if you experiment with your receiver.
An SDR will show them clearly.
I reserve the right to ignore people who have made no attempt to the read the manual, and expect others to do it for them.

All Police, Fire and Ambulance are on Tetra Airwave which no scanner can receive. You might still get the fire service on their handhelds as most brigades are still analogue but there is a slow migration to digital happening with them now. You can still get hospitals, shopwatch, taxis, security, council etc.
