A&E support crews

Our A&E support crews also go to patients in an ambulance. But they deal with patients who do not need the clinical skills of a paramedic or advanced technician.

The staff who form these crews have been trained in basic life-support and help to keep our emergency ambulances free to attend patients who are seriously hurt or unwell.

They deal with a variety of patients, including elderly people who have fallen at home, transfers to hospices and children with high temperatures.
