The College of Paramedics delivers a message to the public



Last month, the NHS Chief Executive, Sir Simon Stevens warned that delays in getting treatment due to people’s fears of coronavirus could pose a risk to their general health. One survey finding revealed that four in ten people are too concerned about being a burden on the NHS to seek the help they need. With the national #HelpUsHelpYou campaign, the public have now been urged to get care when they need it from the NHS. The campaign advises people to contact their GP or the 111 service if they have urgent care needs. This short film made by paramedics sends the message that the NHS, and the Ambulance Service is still there for those people who need emergency help for a stroke, a heart attack or other life-threatening conditions.
