  • Scene support


Discharging at scene?

A function of our team is to make themselves available to ambulance crews who are looking to discharge patients at scene but require the assurance of continued care. This provides the ambulance service a viable pathway for the service user in the care of an experienced service provider and frees the crew to deal with other emergencies.


Wait and Cover

If we encounter a single crewed paramedic whilst on duty within our operational area we will remain with the paramedic (at least) until either a) a DCA arrives or b) the patient is discharged. This provides the paramedic with support, assistance, security and a direct radio link to the police and other night time economy partners.


Pre-ambulance arrival support

We can be tasked by the ambulance service to any medical emergency in Cheltenham town centre within our operational hours. Our response times average less than 3 minutes. Once at the scene our team can ensure the safety and security of the patient as well as provide basic first aid if necessary. We will relay to the ambulance service any information which may be relevant.


Scene support

Dealing with a patient within a busy night time economy environment can on occasion be problematic. The experienced Cheltenham Guardians team can help manage a scene, allowing you to concentrate on your patient. With an excellent working relationship with all elements of Cheltenham's night time economy, plus a direct radio link to the police, CCTV and other strategic partners, the Cheltenham Guardians team are a valuable asset to crews on the ground.


How can I contact Cheltenham Guardians?

You can contact Cheltenham Guardians on 07473 231741 between 22.00 and 07.00 every Saturday night / Sunday morning.
