Carshalton and Wallington MP, Tom Brake, calls for recognition of medical volunteers
The MP for Carshalton and Wallington is calling for the BBC to recognise medical volunteers.
Tom Brake is turning to BBC bosses to raise awareness of Community First Responders (CFRs) through popular programmes like Casualty.
CFRs are trained to respond immediately to 999 calls in their local area.
They go through thorough training and are often able to provide care before an ambulance arrives.
