Sir Gavin Williamson, MP for South Staffordshire, recently visited Rapid Response Medical Group’s centre in Cannock to discuss the group’s ambulance service and training courses.
On Friday, 1st April, the MP for South Staffordshire met Paul Neuchterlien, the Apprenticeship Manager at Rapid Response, and several students training at the centre.
Rapid Response Medical Group is a leading CQC registered ambulance service and medical training academy, providing apprenticeship opportunities for young people across Staffordshire and the West Midlands.
The students spoke to the MP about their journeys into the emergency healthcare sector and about how supportive Rapid Response Medical Group have been throughout their training. They also ran an exercise using the state-of-the-art facilities at the centre to simulate the real-world conditions at the scene of an accident.
Sir Gavin Williamson said: “It was fascinating seeing the work that Rapid Response do, both as an ambulance service but also as a training centre providing young people with vital technical skills. They serve as an excellent example of the real benefits a focus on technical education can bring to young people’s lives and the wider community.”
