Calling 999 video
To support people with learning difficulties to have greater
confidence when making a 999 call, we have created, in partnership
with Sussex Community NHS Trust, this short
video explaining how we respond to your 999 calls.
The DVD uses two short scenarios to show
people with learning disabilities:
- how to call an ambulance
- what may happen during the call
- what may happen when the ambulance arrives.
It aims to increase confidence amongst the learning disabled
population about when to call for help together with increased
awareness from SECAmb staff of the needs of people with learning
disability, facilitating more effective communication and
enabling more effective diagnosis, treatment and care.
