Congratulations to Michelle, Zarig and Derrick who recently passed their Intermediate Level Community First Responder Qualification with West Midlands Ambulance Service. This is an intense medical training programme over three weekends followed by an exam and practical assessment. For Zarig and Derrick, this qualification represents an advance on their fundamental training qualification. Michelle’s qualification – directly in at Intermediate without going through the fundamental qualification – means that she is now live as a First Responder. We now have six First Responders across Ettington, the Pillertons and Newbold-on-Stour.
