A NEW ambulance service station in Kenilworth will enable paramedics to respond to incidents in the town 24 hours a day.
The Community Response Post will be based within Jubilee House and be home to five community paramedics – on a rotational basis – who will have access to a 'rapid response vehicle' being stationed in the town.
The go ahead comes after a successful nine-month trial of the system where a rapid response vehicle was based in the town and now the official handover of the dedicated station has taken place, attended by outgoing kenilworth mayor David Shilton.
Coun Shilton said: “We are very proud and delighted that West Midlands Ambulance Service has decided to locate a community ambulance station at Jubilee House.
“It will be a huge benefit to all residents in Kenilworth and the surrounding area.”
Martyn Scott, area manager for West Midlands Ambulance Service, said: “By having more bases from which to respond to medical emergencies, we can get to patients in need far more quickly.”
