A film about calling an ambulance for people with learning disabilities
This film uses 2 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.
The first scenario focuses on Jeff, who cuts his hand at home, the second on Fred, who is out with his carer, Charlie, when Charlie collapses.
The video is designed to be used with people with learning disabilities who want to learn more about calling an ambuance to provide information and generate discussion. It can also be used in training sessions for Ambulance Service staff about working with people with learning disabilities and may be helpful for other healthcare professionals.
Some comments from the making of the video included:
"It has helped the ambulance staff's confidence with working with people with learning disabilites" (South East Coast Ambulance staff member).
"It's brilliant having a ride in the ambulance with the lights and sirens going" (actor with learning disabilities).
This video is a partnership project between Sussex Community NHS Trust and South East Coast Ambulance NHS Trust
