Dear North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

I am intrigued by the guidelines and/or handbooks used to train staff members in the use of airwave communication devices.

Please provide any guidelines for use of such radio devices and any handbooks, training aids or similar that are used to train staff with the use of these devices.

Yours faithfully,

Patrick Breathen

Hi Patrick

So sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

Unfortunately we aren’t able to provide you with the information you have requested. The training material contains details of major incident procedures that may compromise the security of our staff when dealing with a terrorist incident and details of functions that relate to other emergency services. We are likely to breach our operating licence by revealing such third party and sensitive details. From an NWAS standpoint, the material also includes contact telephone and other contact details for internal departments that aren’t published externally.

This is exempt under Section 23 under the Freedom of Information Act.

I hope you understand the reasons why we can't provide the information requested and apologies that I can't be of any further assistance.

Kind regards
Christina
