A TRIAL scheme in Droitwich Spa in which a nurse attended emergency incidents has come to a close.

The nurse responder scheme started in May and he answered 77 life-threatening calls.

He was on the scene within eight minutes of 53 per cent of calls, providing aid and assistance before paramedics arrived.

Hereford and Worcester Ambulance Service NHS Trust was due to receive a presentation on the trial yesterday at Hartlebury Training Centre.
