Neighbourhood First Responder Scheme
Helping to save lives
in the community
The objective of the Hilmarton Neighbourhood First Responder
Scheme is to provide local support to the Great Western
Ambulance Service NHS Trust and local community by responding
to specific emergency calls in the Hilmarton and Lyneham
area. The Scheme consists of volunteers trained by Wiltshire
St. John Ambulance and the Great Western Ambulance Service
NHS Trust. We provide vital life saving treatment and first
aid prior to the arrival of an emergency ambulance.
The Schemes success is based on local people giving some
time to be trained and to be on-call to support their the
local community. We are particularly interested in recruiting
suitable volunteers in the Lyneham area who would be willing
to provide on-call support during the working day and at
weekends. No previous first aid experience is required as
full training is provided free of charge by Wiltshire St.
John Ambulance and the Great Western Ambulance Service NHS
