Our group is relatively new and we urgently need additional volunteers to be able to offer an increased level of cover to our local community.
We are a small group of local volunteers trained and despatched by the ambulance service to attend serious medical emergencies, where life is at risk. Typically working from our homes, we attend calls in the Marlow ,Marlow Bottom, Medmenham, Turville and Northend areas (and sometimes further afield), aiming to arrive within 5-8 minutes to start life saving treatment while the ambulance is on its way.
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:
- Rotary Club of Marlow www.rotary-ribi.org/clubs/homepage.php?ClubID=554
- Marlow Bottom Valley Plus www.bopag.org.uk/index.php?page=Valley-Plus
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.
