Grant provided to assist our Community First Responders

The parish council was delighted to award a grant of £2,000 to South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust to provide a dedicated kit to be used by a second Community First Responder from Pitstone.

Community First Responders are volunteers and play a vital part in our local emergency healthcare provision as an ambulance will take 20 minutes to reach Pitstone from Stoke Mandeville.  If a 1st Responder is on duty, and can reach you before the ambulance, the 999 service will notify the 1st Responder and they will provide vital immediate first level care.

You can find out more information about becoming a First Responder, or making a donation to the service, here: https://www.scas.nhs.uk/our-services/community-and-co-responders/
