Virtual CFR conference hailed a success

CFR Conference 2020

Our 2020 community first responder (CFR) conference took place on Thursday (4 June), attracting an audience of more than 170 volunteers on Teams Live Event.

The event saw Chief Executive Dorothy Hosein report progress in a “you said, we did” address, which included the introduction of new communications channels such as newsletters and email updates, as well as improvements to training and the recruitment process.

Dorothy also spoke about the additional driver training which had been offered to CFRs during the COVID-19 pandemic, and described future plans to extend their training to include taking blood pressure and temperature checks as part of the national early warning score (NEWS2).

Attendees also heard from around the region, via a variety of videos, with more than 100 questions posed during the event. The conference was originally planned to take place face-to-face but was quickly converted to a virtual format as a result of COVID-19.

You can watch the conference here.
