Mortimer and Burghfield get a new medical vehicle


 On Saturday morning  I attended the official launch of the new Community Responder vehicle for Burghfield and Mortimer. I would like to thank all those who have raised money to buy the car, and all those volunteers who make the service possible. It means trained help can reach an accident or stroke victim in the local area much more quickly than the ambulance, and get on with helping and rescuing the patient whilst the ambulance is on its way. Lives can be saved by rapid response like this.
