About Us

Hatzola Northwest, in London, is a 24/7 community service, operating 365 days a year to provide a swift response to medical emergencies in a 2.5 mile radius from our Ambulance base at NW11 9LU. The service is provided free of charge by our 61 fully qualified medics and paramedic volunteer responders, all of whom have undergone and continue to receive intensive training. They are equipped with comprehensive Basic Life Support kits, including resuscitation equipment, oxygen and defibrillators and are ready to drop everything to respond to a medical emergency.

Hatzola Northwest presently has a fleet of five active ambulances and 3 Fast response Units which are used for responding when needed including urgent patient transport as required.

The volunteers all carry trauma kits and BLS (Basic Life Support) bags, complete with resuscitation equipment, oxygen and defibrillators. Hatzola Northwest presently has a fleet of three active ambulances, which are used for responding to more serious calls and for urgent patient transport as required.

Due to the proximity of its members to the operational area, Hatzola Northwest has a response to scene time within a few minutes.

The Medical Director of Hatzola Northwest is Stuart Rosen MA MD FRCP. Stuart is a Consultant Cardiologist, Ealing and Royal Brompton Hospitals and a Professor of Practice (Cardiology), Imperial College, London.


All Hatzola Northwest volunteers undergo an intensive, initial one year training programme. Beyond the initial training, is an ongoing training programme which includes monthly training sessions delivered by IHCD and Advanced Life Support qualified trainers, with further specialist lectures given by other outside healthcare professionals.
