Neighbourhood First Responder Scheme
Helping to save lives in
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 Trust.
