So what is your CSI BASICS role?
I am a Founding member of the organisation and have held the position of Treasurer and Cheshire Medical Lead.
And where do you respond?
Responds in North East Cheshire but will endeavour to respond to any job in any location to benefit patients.
How long have you been responding as a volunteer for?
Started responding as part of West Midlands CARE Team around 2008.
How long have you been associated with CSI BASICS?
I’ve been a CSI responder since 2011.
What motivates you to volunteer?
I respond because I feel privileged to have the skills that I have been trained in. I want as many people as possible to benefit from this training and I couldn’t contemplate restricting this to ‘office hours’. It also makes me a better more rounded clinician. It helps no end that I get massive enjoyment from responding and playing an active part in my local community.
Interests outside of BASICS?
I have two young children so family time is important. I also enjoy running, skiing and golf when I get time!
