GoodSAM takes the next step


Since its launch back in June more than 1,200 staff and community first responders (CFR) have signed up to respond as a GoodSAM responder for EEAST.

We have seen six successful survival to discharge outcomes for patients, where a GoodSAM responder attended the scene and more than, a staggering, 10,000 alerts sent out.

The next stage of the project is now live from today (13th December) which has enabled nationally governed staff to be included within our GoodSAM responder community. This will include GPs, nurses and other paramedics external to EEAST. This expansion has seen a further 500 responders available in our region to respond to our patients in cardiac arrest today.

Any member of staff who is operational or CFR-qualified can sign up by visiting  After downloading the app, select EEAST as the verifying organisation and you will be sent a user guide to help you use the system.  For external responders, they can sign up in the same manner but opt for ‘GoodSAM’ as the verifying organisation.
