After a very busy Christmas and New Year period, we had a much less stressful January with 85 total logs. It was also our only month with no overdoses! It was also our Annual General Meeting (AGM) in which all of the volunteers and partners are invited to attend where we discuss everything that took place the previous year and what's coming up.
After the lull of January, we anticipated and were well prepared for a spike in patient numbers. This was also our highest amount of transfers to hospital in our ambulance.
Macdonald & MacMillan provided safeTALK suicide alertness for everyone training for our volunteers.
This month, we hit 3000 total logs!
Some of the volunteers took part in a Facebook Live Recruitment drive in which they gave the viewers a tour of the building, each volunteer spoke about their role, and took part in a q&a in the hope to recruit some new volunteers!
This month we were unable to transfer any patients to hospital due to the LEZ restrictions which prevented us from using our ambulance.
We have looked at our data and it shows that there were 4 hospital transfers that the service would have completed but due to the LEZ rules we were unable to.
636 of our volunteer hours this month was during TRNSMT weekend alone. This years festival was especially busy and we had a high amount of patients. Our volunteers worked exceptionally hard throughout the TRNSMT!
This month some of our volunteers attended the Bonnie Banks Football Festival. We provided medical assistance to the children, parents and staff and our volunteers made a load of yummy cakes for our bake sale and raised £286.40! This month was also our highest amount of volunteers hours this year so far (excluding TRNSMT of course)
