Thank you for your support last Wednesday. Being a fairly new paramedic I’m still coming across new situations that I haven’t had to deal with while I’ve been in this role; trauma being one of them. Your support was very much appreciated.
I was one of the Police Officers working at the Cambridge Half Marathon. I am just writing in relation to the way the incident I attended close to the finish line was managed by members of your team. It was a challenging situation but their professionalism was clear to see.

I just want to pass on our thanks for the comments you fed back about the 2 cardiac arrests from the half marathon. We’re really grateful for you taking the time to do this. Both patients are making exceptional progress and we are delighted with the outcomes, both of which we wouldn’t have been able to maintain without the help of your teams! Thanks again – see you next year!
