Teaming up with Cheshire Fire Service

Consultant Anaesthetist Stephan Clements has added blue light driving to his skills thanks to Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service driving instructors.

To make sure Stephan, and other NWEDS doctors, reach incidents quickly, the charity booked sessions with Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service (CFRS) to provide blue light training. Doctors attend a one week course at the Service's headquarters in Winsford, Cheshire, where they are taught enhanced driving skills and, if passed, are certificated to drive under blue lights. 

NWEDS Launch Day.

The North Wales Emergency Doctor Service was officially launched on the 4th July 2010 at The Oriel Country Hotel and Spa, St Asaph. Attended by more than 100 guests it was a resounding success. We had Members of Parliament and Assembly Members attending the launch ceremony in the morning along-side the guests from the North Wales Police, Ambulance Service, RNLI and the Mountain Rescue Teams. There was a valuable oportunity to network and discuss the need for a service like this.
