London Fire and Emergency Planning Authority (London Fire Brigade)

Dear Joe,

Thank you for your request, dated 22 September requesting information in relation to National Joint Councils (NJC).

I can confirm the Authority has taken part in the Emergency Medical Response (EMR) trial. This trial began on Wednesday 17 February 2016 and has been temporarily ceased since Monday 18 September 2017 (see FBU release here: https://www.fbu.org.uk/circular/2017hoc0...). This trial covered four Borough’s and totalling 13 fire stations:

Newham: F21 Stratford, F44 East Ham, F45 Plaistow
Lambeth: H24 Brixton*, H21 Clapham, H25 West Norwood*
Wandsworth: H27 Battersea, H35 Tooting*, H33 Wandsworth
Merton: H34 Wimbledon, H36 Mitcham

* two pump stations.

A report was submitted to the Authorities resources committee on 10 March 2016 in order to provide the Committee with an update on the co-responding trial. You can access this report here; http://moderngov.london-fire.gov.uk/mgco.... The corresponding scheme is undergoing a national evaluation, but that evaluation has not yet concluded. This report is expected to comment on the wider lessons learnt and the clinical outcomes. An early evaluation of Greater Manchester's trail showed positive outcomes (https://www.nationalfirechiefs.org.uk/ne...).

To date, the Authority has received no income as a result of this trial.

I hope you find the information provided of use. If you have any further questions, do let me know.

Your request has been dealt with under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (FOIA). If you are dissatisfied by this response you can request an internal review by writing to the Head of Information Management and Performance at the address below (or email [email address]).
