What’s been happening

South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT) is urging the public to Choose Well this Easter and to stop and think before dialing 999. The Trust is committed to delivering the right care in the right place at the right time, but with demand for ambulance services across the UK increasing we are reminding the public to call us only in the event of a life-threatening emergency. Examples of when to call 999 include choking, chest pain, stroke, serious blood loss and unconsciousness. Using the ambulance service in the correct way will help us ensure a quick response to those in genuine need. Alternative healthcare options for less serious conditions include; visiting your GP or local pharmacy, visiting a minor injury unit or NHS walk-in centre, or calling NHS111. You can also find a whole host of information and advice online at
