Welsh Ambulance Service

On Thursday 20th February, Ffion Poole, Hannah Thomas and Christy Taylor went to Swansea where they gave a presentation to Mandy, Leanne and Matthew from the Welsh Ambulance Service.  The presentation was of the training Caerphilly People First provides to medical students, and was filmed in order to publicise the working relationship between the Welsh Ambulance Service and people with learning disabilities.

The  possibility of Hannah becoming a Learning Disability Community Champion for the Ambulance Service was also discussed.  Ffion is already a Champion, and the role involves talking to groups of people with learning disabilities about the work ambulance staff do.
