Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate. The WBRRC (West Berks Rapid Response Cars) charity provides fully equipped blue-lighted response cars to off-duty ambulance staff who volunteer to drive for the WBRRC. They can respond to 999 calls if closer , in addition to the ambulance and often get to patients first, saving vital minutes. It is entirely funded by public and corporate donation and receives no government or NHS funding

The WBRRC Charity was set up in 2004 with one car. Since then the trustees and supporters have raised sufficient funds to
keep four cars on the road. Since 2004 the four WBRRC have attended in excess
of 3000 incidents across the area of West Berks, to the borders of Oxon, Hants
and Wilts. To ensure the cars remain on the road, serviced and maintained in order that they are able to save lives, the WBRRC relies on the generous
donations of the public and local companies.
The Rapid Responders are all fully trained paramedics & medical technicians,they drive the cars in their spare time and are paid a nominal fee per job by the NHS trust. When a 999 call comes in, if they are closest to the incident the responders can be at a patient’s side before the ambulance arrives, saving vital seconds and providing crucial, lifesaving assistance. In addition to accidents in the home, high street and on the roads of the county, the cars are
often called to major accidents, such as those on the M4.
