St John Ambulance is Australia’s leading provider of first aid services, training and equipment and is a trusted organisation with over 135 years of service to the community. At AAPM, we are committed to forming partnerships that offer added value to our members’ practices and to the profession. St John Ambulance is a registered charity and certified Social Trader active in all States and Territories across Australia. They are dedicated to empowering people to save lives through first response. Each year, St John Ambulance delivers 1.2 million hours of voluntary community service, trains 500,000 people in first aid and CPR and treats over 100,000 people in Australia at public events. Their vision for the future is to provide life-saving humanitarian services to individuals and communities across Australia. As an AAPM National Partner, St John Ambulance will offer discounts on training and equipment that can help your staff and your practice. We know that as Practice Managers you need to support and strengthen you practice in so many ways, and this partnership will ensure you can be confident of accessing high quality training and equipment, while also saving your practice money. Fiona Ellis, General Manager at St John Ambulance, is particularly keen to see practices install defibrillators. “Every year, over 25,000 Australians suffer a Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) so many of these occur when a person is already feeling slightly tired and unwell, and they may well be visiting their doctor to seek advice. The combination of a defibrillator and trained professional CPR can raise the survival rate from its current level of 10% to over 70%.” AAPM CEO Nicholas Voudouris said “AAPM is excited to have St John Ambulance as our National Partner, it is an iconic brand that has earned the trust of Australians through its long history of excellent work across the country. AAPM is looking forward to bringing high value, quality services and products from St John Ambulance to our members”. We are delighted to welcome St John Ambulance to the partnership family.
