Who we are
Wiltshires Emergency Response Doctors Charity
SWIFT Medics are a registered charity providing emergency medical care in Wiltshire at the scene of incidents or sudden severe serious medical conditions such as heart attacks, severe asthma or meningitis.
SWIFT Medics have 10 doctors across Wiltshire who respond to calls from the South Western Ambulance Service to support the ambulance crew in incidents where a Emergency Response Doctor is required. Incidents range from road traffic accidents on the M4 or country roads, to attending to heart attack victims or children with breathing difficulties. Calls can come any time of day or night, 7 days a week. Doctors can be dispatched to incidents further afield and in 2005 two SWIFT Medics doctors attended the London bombings.
SWIFT Medics receive no funding from the NHS or emergency services sector and rely solely on donations to fund its operation. All staff at SWIFT Medics give their time purely on a voluntary basis so money raised for SWIFT Medics goes directly towards the specialist training of doctors and medical equipment needed to attend medical emergencies across Wiltshire.
