“I am told your team were professional, flexible and of great value in terms of dealing with people who may otherwise have taken up police time or clogged up A&E. I understand that your assistance greatly reduced the number of times the police officers would have had to call an NHS Ambulance. Your overall assistance and without your support the resources of Wiltshire Police would certainly have been tested."
“I couldn’t recommend these guys more, both myself and my partner have needed them after polo accidents and they were incredibly professional and knowledgeable.
I don’t know what we’d do without them at polo events!”
“I was treated amazingly well"
"The paramedics were chatty and great to talk to. they used equipment that i have never seen before and my mum was jealous of such modern supplies"
"Thank you for the fantastic care given to my son this afternoon by Gary & Jayne"
"We couldn't have asked for better care"
"I can’t thank Gary and his team at GWAS enough. I’ve had the pleasure of working with this highly professional yet personable medical consultancy company over the past few months. Their service has been exceptionally efficient and responsive. Gary has been a trusted source and a fountain of knowledge during a very unpredictable time throughout Covid-19. I shall continue to use this fully certified independent company and could not recommend them highly enough."

Gary and his team of paramedics have been instrumental to my business over the past few months, quickly and effectively administering COVID tests in the work place and allowing us all to work with a lot more confidence. I would highly recommend using GWAS.
