This week, we’re moving to new premises in Stokenchurch, Buckinghamshire. The move will give us space to introduce a state of the art simulation suite, allowing crews to safely train in different environments using the latest techniques and equipment.

2018 is a pivotal year in our history, as we take responsibility for our clinical governance and expand the provision of our service.

Amanda, our CEO, explains “We are establishing a robust clinical governance process and will later become Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered. Clinical governance encompasses all aspects of our work that essentially affects the patients we treat.

“This move will allow us to enhance the service we offer, and to better meet the needs of the people in the Thames Valley. It will include expanding our fleet of Emergency Response Vehicles (ERV), reviewing our hours of operation and eventually looking at the model of aircraft that we use”.

She continues, “With this expansion comes greater responsibility and we must also provide the physical space that everyone working in the charity needs. Our new office premises will give us the space to train and educate our crews.”

The office and simulation suite was designed and delivered by Woodhouse Workspace. The new simulation suite consists of the latest audio and visual technology. This allows our crew to safely learn and train in different environments using specialist techniques and pre-hospital medical equipment.

Using life-like simulations manikins, we will be able to deliver regular teaching opportunities to our doctors and paramedics.

Our Medical Director, Dr Syed said, “Thanks to the generous support we receive from the public, we are now in a position to make this move. We are confident that we will continue to enhance our critical service to meet the need of the patients and public that we serve”.
