KENILWORTH MP Jeremy Wright has been quick to find out more about how the rapid medical response vehicle based at Jubilee House will operate.
Mr Wright, whose constituency office is also based at the town’s new public service centre, gave a hearty welcome to the new paramedic service, which is expected to be fully functioning by the end of May.
He said: “It is great news for Kenilworth that we will now have an emergency response vehicle, staffed with specially-trained paramedics.”
The rapid response car will be on call for 24 hours a day, seven days a week, manned by a team of five paramedics working ten hour shifts. The paramedics are specially trained, not only to administer emergency aid, but also to decide what further treatment, if any, a patient needs. If urgent hospital admission could be needed, an ambulance will already have been alerted at the Warwick ambulance HQ to provide back-up.
Under the new system, all ambulances covering South Warwickshire will operate from Warwick with five rapid response vehicles based in outlying areas at Kenilworth, Southam, Shipston, Wellesbourne and Henley.
