Thank you for visiting the South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT) press office page.
If you are a journalist with a media enquiry, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0300 369 0135, and we will respond to you within working hours (Monday-Friday 9am-5pm).
Please note our service responds to around 2,650 emergency incidents a day.
Although every patient is important to us, we focus on providing information to the public about very serious incidents they may need to be aware of. This means we don't usually provide details about less serious incidents, nor general sightings of our ambulances and air ambulances. We cannot provide details about patients we attend at private addresses, confirm deaths, nor provide condition updates on patients no longer in our care.
We do consider other media enquiries, as well as interview and filming requests.
Out of Hours
You should only contact us out of hours about very serious or major ongoing incidents (as determined by high number of patients, high number of resources or significant local disruption, such as a motorway closure).
For urgent out-of-hours enquiries, please call 0300 369 0021. Please note that if you contact this number about incidents that are not very serious or major ongoing incidents, you will not get a response.
