Responder policies and forms

The Responder Policy aims to provide a robust governance framework for the recruitment, management, welfare and deployment of Responders across the organisation. It is vital that all Responders review the document and familiarise themselves with the many revisions. All the associated documents can be found on the new Responder webpage and your Community Responder Officer will be happy to discuss any aspect of the policy.

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.
