Update on injured crew following incident in Southmead, Bristol

29 April 2021

Earlier this week we reported that three South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT) crew members were injured when a car collided with a parked ambulance in Southmead, Bristol.

It has been a really difficult few days for everyone at the Trust and it has been a stark reminder of the challenging and difficult environment we often work in, however, we are pleased to be able to give a positive update on those involved.

Two of our crew members are out of hospital and are in good spirits as they continue their recovery at home.  The third crew member, one of our valued Student Paramedics, remains in hospital but is making good progress and is expected to return to her studies after a period of rehabilitation. 

Our thoughts remain with them as they all recover and in the meantime we continue to help the police with their enquiries.
