Paramedics and volunteers will be offering free blood pressure checks for any visitors to the South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT) stand this week at the Devon County Show.  (Exeter: Thursday 17-19 May)


The team will also be doing CPR demonstrations and educating the public how to act fast and help save patients who may need quick action when they become ill.


There will also be an opportunity for visitors to talk about the experiences of mental health patients using 999 in an emergency situation, as SWASFT gather information on this issue at the stand to benefit future working practice.


This year SWASFT will be selling cute knitted teddies to support the South Western Ambulance Service Charity.  A group of knitting nannies from Plymouth, the Busy Fingers Knitting Group (image attached), have kindly spent hours yarning the teddies to help raise funds for the charity.  The South Western Ambulance Service Charity supports those emergency teams who go the extra mile for all of us in the community.


To support the South Western Ambulance Service Charity with a one-off or regular donation please visit and search for SWASC.
