Members of the public can nominate Ambulance Service staff who have gone ‘Beyond the Call of Duty’

The search is on to identify the patient’s choice of ambulance employees who have gone beyond the call of duty over the past year.

Every year, the North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) holds the Beyond the Call of Duty Awards to recognise staff who have given exceptional care. The celebration also incorporates the long service awards for those staff who have been with the service for 20, 25, 30, 35, and 40 years.

Message in a bottle campaign

A joint venture to help people with dementia or learning difficulties in a medical emergency has been launched.

Lions Clubs International (British Isles) is promoting a scheme named “Message in a Bottle”, in partnership with the North East Ambulance Service (NEAS).

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:
