WHAT WE DO

We are a group of approximately 50 trained volunteers (all students of the University of Nottingham) who act as an additional resource to the East Midlands Ambulance Service. Using two cars and specialist equipment we provide emergency care to patients suffering from a variety of serious and life-threatening illness and injury. We can be tasked to 999 calls anywhere within the East Midlands but the vast majority of our responses are within a few miles of the Medical School at the QMC, Nottingham. We aim to give our volunteers a chance to have a real impact on the lives of people within our community.

 

We have volunteered more than 20,000 hours and attended over 8000 incidents since our inception in 2014 and at over half of these our responders have arrived before the ambulance enabling them to provide the patient with the vital emergency care they needed, quicker than it would otherwise have come. The 999 calls we attend are extremely varied but have included:

 

Cardiac Arrests (when the patient has no pulse and has stopped breathing)

Medical Emergencies (seizures, diabetic emergencies)

Chest Pain/Cardiac Complaints

Unconscious Patients

Breathing Difficulties

Traumatic Injuries and Falls

Other incidents such as Strokes, Sepsis, Overdoses, Hangings and House Fires.
