‘Bubble screen’ creates additional protection for ambulance volunteers and patients
North East Ambulance Service (NEAS) is introducing plastic screening for its team of volunteer drivers to help keep them and their patients safe amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
Made of durable, flexible PVC plastic, the bubble screen is secured behind the front seats of the vehicle to create a protective shield between the driver and passenger.
The bubble screen was trialled by 54-year-old ACS driver Bob Pattinson, of Blyth, who began volunteering with NEAS in November 2017 after a career in the military.
