The South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT) covers one of the most rural areas of the UK and are committed to providing the population of the South West with the highest standard of out-of-hospital care.


We are extremely grateful to the many Community First Responders (CFRs) who volunteer to help members of their local community in their time of need.

Every day, CFRs from across the South West attend emergencies within their local communities. Sometimes the difference is providing reassurance prior to the arrival of an ambulance; sometimes it is saving someone's life.


If you would like to support your local community and make it a safer place to live, please visit the SWASFT website for more information.
