Derrick Allen qualifies as a Community First Responder

Derrick Allen has recently become active as a West Midlands Ambulance Service First Responder and joins the Ettington Community First Responder team.

Derrick is married and lives in Pillerton Hersey. His grow n-up children and their families live in Langley. He will be able to increase the available cover in Ettington, the Pillertons and villages in the south of the team’s coverage area. His location to the South East of our coverage area means that, when required, he is also able to support First Responder colleagues in neighbouring teams such as Kineton and Oxhill.

He has a background in the medical world, both as a dentist and in the Services with deployments in the UK and overseas.

Derrick said; “The training I received was excellent (you even get an Edexcel BTEC Level 2 Award from WMAS!) with great support and encouragement from the trainers at Stratford-upon-Avon Ambulance Station. Additionally, the Ettington group are so enthusiastic, motivated and professional; it is a privilege to join them to support our communities”.
