Patients continue to be reassured that help and support is readily available thanks to the ongoing partnership between Wellington Free and Freedom Medical Alarms. The service connects patients directly to the Wellington Free Ambulance Clinical Communication Centre and the highly-trained Emergency Medical Dispatchers (EMDs) at the push of a button.
Freedom Medical Alarms, the joint venture with Wellington Free Ambulance, is thrilled to be named an accredited provider of medical alarms through the Ministry of Social Development. The new two-year contract means Freedom Medical Alarms is accredited to supply those who qualify through Work and Income under the Disability Allowance.
