On Tuesday 22nd of October 2019, Ffion Poole, Sharon Cochrane, Cyril Luke and Christy Taylor visited Gwerin day centre in Rhymney where we delivered ‘Big Accident, Little Accident’ training. This training is all about when is the right time to call 999. We talked about people’s experiences when they have called 999 or 101 and how they have been treated by paramedics and other health professionals.
We also handed out the ‘About Me’ sheets and magnets. We talked about how to fill them in and explained to everyone that if they need to ring an ambulance the paramedics will come into their home and look for the sheets. These sheets contain information such as a person’s likes and dislikes, allergies, what medication they take, and emergency contact details.
