It costs around £8000 to get a volunteer Doctor to the point where they can respond. So where does the money go?
Our responders use their own private vehicles to attend emergencies. They pay for their own fuel and insurance. In the future, we hope to be able to contribute to these costs.
So where does £8000 go?
- Advanced Driving and Blue Light Driving Courses
- Life-saving medical Equipment
- Medical consumables & Medications
- Blue light & Siren kit for their vehicle
- Personal Protective Equipment
Although we work alongside the NHS, we receive no funding. All our responders provide their time voluntarily in addition to their full-time jobs.
We have a waiting list of highly qualified and motivated individuals who are keen to start responding. This means the sooner we can equip them, the sooner they can get out there and start making a difference to people suffering from life-threatening emergencies.
Every little helps, and we are always on the lookout for people to help our fundraising efforts, please do not hesitate to contact us.
All donations received will be efficiently used, through the kind support of both local and national suppliers who often provide at-cost equipment and services.
