South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) wants to hear more views and opinions from young people aged 14-16 about their local ambulance service.
Anyone aged 14 or over can become a member of SCAS NHS Foundation Trust – it doesn’t cost anything, gives you an opportunity to have a say about how ambulance services are developed in the future and is a great addition to your CV when applying for a job, college or university place.
Askar Keen, one of their youngest members, tells us why it’s important for other young people to get involved with SCAS:
“I joined SCAS as a public member in June 2012. My lifelong ambition is to be a doctor and work in pre-hospital medicine and trauma. This means I could join the BASICS scheme, which is where a doctor can be called at anytime to respond to a major trauma in the surrounding area.”
“When I’m old enough, I hope to also become a community first responder.”
So if you’re aged 14-16, or you have a child, nephew, niece, grandchild who is, why not suggest they become a member of their local ambulance Trust.
