ambulance.jpgSouth Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust has recently collaborated with Devon and Cornwall Police and the Peninsula Drug and Alcohol Teams to produce this movie aimed at service users, to give them reassurance that the Police will not automatically be called if they overdose and need help. 

The project developed following service user feedback and has been a fantastic collaboration between many parts of the Trust, involving Public Relations, Operations, Clinical Hubs, Fleet and Safeguarding, not to mention the individuals who play starring roles in the movie.

The video below has been made to help dispel the myths about calling 999, therefore encouraging bystanders to make that call and help save lives.

postie_resized.jpgAlison has become increasingly concerned that the Tory Government’s botched privatisation of the Royal Mail, which seriously undervalued its worth, has put the much relied on universal postal service at risk. The warning has come from a variety of sources, including Unions and Royal Mail executives.

 The significant increase in postal competition in urban areas, with alternative providers offering a cheaper service, is threatening the future sustainability of the UK’s universal postal service. Private providers are offering cheaper rates in urban areas, whilst not providing rural services. This threatens the Royal Mail’s ‘one price goes anywhere’ service because the royal mail rely on profit in urban areas to subsidise rural services.

Alison said: ‘I was really concerned to hear that the ‘one price goes anywhere’ service is at risk. People in rural areas rely on our Royal Mail to deliver their post, no matter where they live, and it is deeply worrying that they may have to pay significantly more for their postal services in the future should this issue not be addressed.’

Labour's shadow trade minister Ian Murray said: 'This stark warning from the Chief Executive of Royal Mail will be deeply worrying for the millions of consumers and small businesses who rely on Royal Mail's six-day delivery and essential services.

'Labour warned that David Cameron's Royal Mail fire sale would put vital services at risk. This comes after taxpayers were short changed by hundreds of millions of pounds by the botched sale.

'Ministers urgently need to clarify what action they will take to secure the future of postal services following the mess created by their botched fire sale.'
