Berwick community paramedic scheme thanked for its support during Coronavirus pandemic

More than 3,700 patients have been supported by a popular community paramedic scheme in Berwick since it began 18 months ago.

The community paramedic scheme – which is a joint initiative between North East Ambulance Service and the NHS Northumberland Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) – was launched in July 2019, initially as a three-month pilot but was extended until March 2020 and is now being reviewed on a month-by-month basis.

Mr Sanghera, who is assistant director for strategic finance and business partnering at Homes England and recently deputy director of finance at the Department for Education, replaces Douglas Taylor, who retires after six years on the NEAS board of directors.
