The Norfolk Accident Rescue Service [NARS] has been featured in the Eastern Daily Press where their ‘stealth service’ has been recognised and celebrated for aiding the region over the course of almost 50 years.
The NARS Team spoke to the paper, explaining more about their scheme and the dedicated group of paramedics, doctors and other medical personnel who run it.
Within the feature, NARS clinical lead and vice-chairman Ryan Warwick discussed the scheme’s overlooked relationship with the NHS and lack of government funding, outlining how vital public donations can be in aiding the scheme’s voluntary pre-hospital care across the region.
He was also able to demonstrate some of the high-level kit they have, purchased from manufacturers as reconditioned to save money, demonstrating how every pound spent is carefully considered.
The work of paramedic Nigel Strange was also showcased. He is working to improve the income for the charity by offering training to GPs, dentists and others in the private sector, providing a valuable service to others while creating a small but steady income.
The feature also gives information on how members of the public can help the scheme, including information on NARS’ recent partnership with Simper Law Ltd, leading to the solicitors offering a free will-writing service for those considering to bequest to NARS.
NARS are thankful for the opportunity to share their story and for the support they have received.
