  1. I am trying to contact the team from the Warwick Hub, in particular Paramedic Andy Allsop who helped at the scene of the RTC on Friday 27th March and who was responsible for saving the life of my daughter, Hannah Weston. I have the names of others who also attended, but I am having difficulty in trying to speak to them. Thank you

    1. Hi Cher…thank you for your message and I hope your daughter is doing well and has made a good recovery. Best way of passing on your thanks is to send an email to pals@wmas.nhs.uk who will identify all of those involved and make sure your message is passed on. Hope that helps.
