BEEP Doctors are on hand to assist paramedics at the scene and offer pre-hospital emergency treatment, where needed. Each BEEP Doctor carries a basic amount of equipment, which they need to attend serious incidents across Cumbria. The more serious the incident they attend, the more advanced equipment they need to monitor patients, perform minor surgery or anaesthetize patients before they are taken to hospital.

Our volunteer BEEP doctors are on call 24 hours 7 days a week and have been responding to call outs as well as working in the NHS, A&E departments, GP surgeries during the pandemic. During 2020 our team of dedicated Doctors attended a total of 203 emergency callouts across the whole of Cumbria. 59% of these callouts were to road traffic accidents.

The aim is to equip all 15 doctors with a Zoll x-series monitors, which provide real-time clinical feedback on a patients state. In the pre-hospital environment, access to data helps the doctors manage trauma, cardiac arrest, chest pain, respiratory distress, paediatric issues, and other conditions.

To improve patient outcomes, our doctors rely on feedback and data at every step of the rescue. Access to real-time clinical feedback on the scene can take BEEP Doctors care to the next level and enable our team to manage multiple disease states; therefore saving more lives.

BEEP Doctors (BASICS) Cumbria receive no funding from the NHS so rely on donations and fundraising efforts from the local community to ensure we can keep attending incidents and keep you all safe. The aim is to raise £145,000 over the next 6-12 months.
