About Us

Hatzola Northwest Trust is a registered charity whose objects are the protection and preservation of health and the relief of sickness. Hatzola Northwest was started in 1982 by a handful of volunteers who realised the need for a neighbourhood swift response to medical emergencies.

Hatzola Northwest is a 24/7 community service, operating 365 days a year to provide a swift response to medical emergencies in the immediate area. The service is provided entirely free of charge and currently provided by approximately 45 active volunteer responders, all of whom have undergone intensive training, carry radios and respond in their own vehicles.

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.
