“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"
