Ambulance service registers 500th community defibrillator

The 500th public access defibrillator in the region has now been installed outside a community centre in Redcar.

Part funded by the North East Ambulance Service Charitable Fund, the 500th community defibrillator is now located on the outside of the Gleneagles Centre to help save lives of those in cardiac arrest.

Designing Ambulances for the future

Patients of North East Ambulance Service are helping to contribute to the design of the services fleet of ambulances in future.

A group of 14 people came together recently with the services fleet and operations teams to look at the needs of different patient groups and make recommendations on how the experience of people with a variety of needs could be improved if some changes are made.

NEAS conducting groundbreaking trial on cardiac arrest patients


A study aimed at finding the best way to treat people who have suffered a cardiac arrest outside of hospital is underway in the North East.

Traditionally, adrenaline has been used - but some research suggest this could actually be harmful.

The blind study, developed by Warwick University, will see 50% of cardiac arrest patients in the North East given a salt-water solution instead.

There is a process for those patients who do not wish to participate. Further details below:
