Improving the chances of surviving a cardiac arrest in the North East

Improving the chances of survival for cardiac arrest patients is something close to North East Ambulance Service’s heart and their latest initiative is set to do just that.

If you or someone you cared about was having a cardiac arrest and just a short walk away from where you were, there was someone trained in lifesaving skills, would you want them to come and help?

Weardale community paramedic scheme starts

A new community paramedic service has been set up in Weardale.

The service started this month. It covers Crook, Willington and Stanhope and will initially operate for a 12-month trial period.  The new service is in addition to a similar scheme which currently operates in Barnard Castle.

Brother and ambulance crew get Carter – just in time

A Newcastle man was effectively dead for 20 minutes, but Bruce Carter is alive thanks to his brother, a passer-by and a team from the North East Ambulance Service.

Bruce, a 61 year-old self-employed plumber, suffered a cardiac arrest while out cycling around Tyneside with his brother Tristram.  The brothers were reunited with the ambulance crew so Bruce could thank them.

Brothers rewarded for their brave efforts in getting their mum emergency help

Three brothers from Newcastle have been awarded bravery certificates by the North East Ambulance Service for their actions in helping to get emergency help for their mum after she collapsed at home.

Seven year old twins Charlie Duke and Dylan Duke, and their four year old brother Jayden Douglas, were at home when their mum Lisa Hefferin collapsed at the bottom of the stairs and became unresponsive.
