Local people saving local lives in the local Communities of Buckingham, Maids Morten, Akley, Gawcott, Finmere, Tingwick and Padbury.

Buckingham and Villages CFR

Our Community First Responders are volunteers, trained and dispatched by South Central Ambulance Service to attend time critical 999 calls. We are fully equipped to treat patients suffering a range of life threatening medical conditions. We live in and respond to our local communities, and are always within 8 minutes (often closer) of those in need of assistance. We rely heavily on public donations, please help using the orange ‘donate button’ above.

What we do

We provide basic life support care until the arrival of the ambulance. We carry oxygen and a defibrillator as well as other medical equipment and pain relief. We can be with a patient very quickly – providing emergency care in the critical time before the ambulance arrives.


We are very grateful to all those who have donated money, time and energy to the local CFR scheme for this community. We would particularly like to thank:

  • Buckingham AED Project

If you live locally, or run a local business, and could help us with our fundraising we would love to hear from you.


Some CFRs run events where you can ‘meet the team’.

This area will display all events that the South Central Ambulance Charity are aware of.


CFRs often get asked to attend events such as a village fete or fair in order to demonstrate vital life saving skills and collect on behalf of our charity.

If you are organising an event and would like us to attend, please email us.



Some schemes have volunteers who are qualified to provide first aid cover at local events. To find out if we can do this for you please email us.
