BEEP Doctors has revealed its volunteer doctors attended 31 call outs in August across Cumbria from Barrow to Kendal, Penrith to Thirlmere.

The charity’s unpaid medical professionals are able to treat the sickest patients on the roadside, in their homes or at work, and attend serious incidents in the county including road traffic collisions, farming accidents or other life-threatening medical emergencies, as well as major incidents.

The charity is currently trying to reach its fundraising target of £145,000 to buy new lifesaving equipment and is only £10,000 away.
