GoodSam to increase radius

Date: 11 April 2022

We are pleased to announce that from Monday 11th April, here at the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST), we will be alerting GoodSAM responders to patients within a 2 mile radius.

EEAST has many rural areas, which are difficult to get to. By increasing this radius it will increase our chances to notify more GoodSAM responders of patients in cardiac arrest. For GoodSAM responders who live and work in more urban areas there is a manual override you can make by watching the video below.


If you are not a GoodSAM responder but are trained in Basic Life Support with an in-date CPR certificate please register with GoodSAM today. You never know who could need your help! 

  • Summary:

    From Monday 11th April, EEAST will be alerting GoodSAM responders to patients within a 2 mile radius.
