Hatzola Northwest Trust is a registered charity whose objects are the protection and preservation of health and the relief of sickness. Hatzola North West was started in 1982 by a handful of volunteers who realised the need for a neighbourhood swift response to medical emergencies.

Hatzola North West is a 24/7 community service, operating 365 days a year to provide a swift response to medical emergencies in the immediate area.

 

The service is provided entirely free of charge and currently provided by approximately 45 active volunteer responders, all of whom have undergone intensive training, carry radios and respond in their own vehicles.

 

The volunteers all carry trauma kits and BLS (Basic Life Support) bags, complete with resuscitation equipment, oxygen and defibrillators. Hatzola North West presently has a fleet of three active ambulances, which are used for responding to more serious calls and for urgent patient transport as required. Due to the proximity of its members to the operational area, Hatzola North West has a response to scene time within a few minutes.


All Hatzola Northwest volunteers undergo an intensive initial one year training programme. Beyond the initial training, is an ongoing training programme which includes monthly training sessions delivered by IHCD and Advanced Life Support qualified trainers with specialist lectures given by doctors, A & E Consultants at the Royal Free Hospital, Hospital Medical Team and Police and LAS trainers.

 

As part of their training, Hatzola Northwest volunteers have in the past been invited to join London Ambulance Service Fast Response Units as observers on calls. Hatzola Northwest has regular liaison with The Metropolitan Police at local and national level and enjoys an excellent relationship with the Primary Care Trust.
