Emergency Services
Police, Fire and Ambulance


I would hope that the three Services mentioned above will provide all the information for this section.  I would also hope that it will include advice and help on security and safety.  And maybe the Red Cross and/or St. John Ambulance will also contribute with good advice and what they too can offer.  Neighbourhood Watch Schemes are also to be covered in these pages.

If you are a local member of one of the above services, maybe you can help gather the information. 
If so contact the Webmaster:  web at penkridge.org.uk

Staffordshire Ambulance N.H.S. Trust maintains two distinct services, the 999 Accident and Emergency Service and the Non-Emergency Patient Transport Services.

The Non-Emergency Patient Transport Services are only accessed through your Health Centre, GP or the receiving Hospital Clinic.

The Non-Emergency Patient Transport Services will not be operating during holiday periods and advice on the availability of that service should be sought from either the receiving Hospital or your Health Centre.

The Emergency Ambulance Service (999) will always be available 24hrs a day, every day, including all holiday periods.

Dial 999 and the telecom operator will automatically pass on your telephone number to the Ambulance Emergency Control Centre. Below are the first questions that will be asked as soon as you are connected to the Staffordshire Ambulance Service Emergency Control Centre.  Click here for the Ambulance Web Site

If you have to phone the Ambulance Service, please answer these questions as clearly as possible. It will help the Ambulance Service no end.
