Community First Responder Activations

Roedd y cais yn rhannol lwyddiannus.

Dear North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

Please could you provide the following information...

1) Number of Activations by Scheme / Callsign for Community First Responders in your region. Please include a description if listed by callsign so it is clear the area the CFR responds in.

2) The percentage of CFR activations where a CFR arrived before a trust mobilised resource, i.e a DCA or RRV.

3) The percentage of CFR activations where a CFR has been directly responsible for meeting the response time target for a call type. i.e a Red1 call where a CFR arrived within 8 minutes but was not backed up by a trust resource within 8 minutes.

4) The number of calls where the CFR was the closest resource to an incident but not activated.

5) The average distance travelled for a CFR attending an incident, listed by county.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Latham

Dear Andrew

 

Further to your freedom of information request, please find below
responses to your questions.   I have provided data for the 12 month
period April 2016-March 2017.

 

1) Number of Activations by Scheme / Callsign for Community First
Responders in your region. Please include a description if listed by
callsign so it is clear the area the CFR responds in.

 

2) The percentage of CFR activations where a CFR arrived before a trust
mobilised resource, i.e a DCA or RRV.

 

3) The percentage of CFR activations where a CFR has been directly
responsible for meeting the response time target for a call type. i.e a
Red1 call where a CFR arrived within 8 minutes but was not backed up by a
trust resource within 8 minutes.

 

Please see attached data sheet in response to questions 1-3

 

4) The number of calls where the CFR was the closest resource to an
incident but not activated.

 

In the event that an available CFR  is the closest resource to an
incident, they would be activated.

 

5) The average distance travelled for a CFR attending an incident, listed
by county.

 

To answer this question we would have to review every individual incident
to determine the CFR's location at the time of activation and the location
of the incident to calculate the distance travelled.  It is the view of
the Trust that the cost of determining, locating, retrieving and
extracting each individual incident would exceed the 18 hour appropriate
limit, as prescribed by Freedom of Information and Data Protection Act
Fees Regulation 2004. 

 

I hope the above is of assistance.
