This is the area where our Community First Responders can access manuals and documents.
The world of pre-hospital care and emergency first responding can be both challenging and incredibly rewarding. Throughout South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, we are proud to have over 1600 dedicated community based first responders working with us to help serve those people whom are in the most need and are very much an integral part of the emergency care services that we provide.
The field of pre-hospital medicine requires every person responsible for delivering care to remain confident, competent and up to date with their knowledge and skills.
It must be understood that whilst you will learn an awful lot in a relatively short time, this is only the beginning and you are very much entering into a life long learning commitment.
The CFR team is dedicated to not only providing help and training, but also continued support when you are actively responding. However it is also important that you personally take ownership of your own learning and goals, with these attached documents being the first step on that journey.
They should be seen as an integral part of your basic training as the contents within will compliment your taught sessions. Thoroughly reading and understanding the topics covered will help to ensure that you begin your training with a level of knowledge that allows you a much greater understanding of the theoretical aspects taught and a greater emphasis to be placed upon both practical skills and experience.
So please enjoy the topics within, take your time to read them all and don’t forget to bring these documents along with you to any courses.
We look forward to seeing you very soon! The Community Responding Team
