South Western Ambulance service is committed to providing a clean, safe environment for our patients. All our vehicles are deep cleaned every six weeks, and whenever there has been a contamination risk. We have ‘Make Ready’ teams that manage the vehicles which are taken off the road which ensures our crews always have a replacement vehicle available, so that they can continue to be operational.

Bath-based paramedic Simon Moody has been hailed a hero after he stepped in to save the life of a Clevedon man – while off duty – and is encouraging everybody to learn the lifesaving CPR skill. South Western Ambulance Service’s (SWASFT) paramedic Simon Moody was off duty and stuck in Bath city centre traffic in the pouring rain in May 2017 when he noticed a man looking unwell on the pavement. It soon became clear the man was struggling to breath and was going into cardiac arrest at the side of the road, as passers-by tried to help. Luckily for the patient Simon stepped straight in and gave him chest compressions putting his paramedic life-saving skills into action before backup from his ambulance crew mates arrived.
