Following a recent Coroners hearing in the South West, the Coroner has asked that guidance on calling 999 for an ambulance be shared with all educational establishments. The aim of the guidance is to help and support education staff when calling 999 in order to achieve an appropriate and timely response. Please distribute and display appropriately within your education setting.
