Busy Volunteer SAVES Doctors SAVING Lives Across The County

Between April 2020 and March 2021, despite the pressures of the Covid-19 Pandemic on their lives and "day jobs", our five volunteer SAVES doctors attended 158 incidents, providing expert care, around the clock, across the county and occasionally beyond. 


SAVES members give a great deal of their time and energy free of charge. In return SAVES provides a comprehensive set of emergency medical equipment and training.
