Youngsters at Priory Rise School are now prepared to act in the case of an emergency, thanks to a visit from city emergency health professionals.

Getting the right health care – at the right time and in the right place - is something the South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) is keen to educate pupils about.

Emergency care assistant Gill Towers and ambulance technician Sarah West from Milton Keynes ambulance station presented a special health assembly to around 120 pupils at the school in Tattenhoe.

Youngsters were later given examples of injuries and illnesses and asked to select the most appropriate care pathway for each.

Sue Cox, headteacher, said: “It’s really good for our children to have the opportunity to learn about the vital role of the ambulance service and how to access services.”
