The speed at which lifesaving care can be delivered varies incredibly the world over. The UK has some of the fastest ambulance response times in the world, however in London, a first responder only arrives within 8 minutes to an immediately life threatening call 70% of the time and outside of London this is only achieved in 50% of calls. In such events this can be too late; irreparable brain and heart damage can occur within a couple of minutes. When patients suffer a head injury they often stop breathing although their brain is actually not itself injured. Opening an airway and giving basic life support can radically alter the outcome for these patients. The problem has been finding people who can do this, alerting them and rapidly getting them to the patients. There are, of course, thousands of people with such skills; off-duty doctors, nurses, police officers, first aiders are all "Good Samaritans" who are simply unaware of the emergency going on next door or outside their building. The Good SAM App uses the technology that can notify these people and help the person in need. Who Are We? Good SAM is a community of people – Good Samaritans – happy to assist if they are the closest person to a medical emergency. They are trained in first aid and may have additional skills. They can maintain an airway, help stop bleeding and, if necessary, perform life saving, high quality cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) or use a defibrillator. The "SAM" in the name not only refers to Samaritan, but is also an acronym for “Smartphone Activated Medics”. What Are The Apps ? We are publishing two applications; GoodSAM Alerter and GoodSAM Responder. The GoodSAM Alerter app uses locational services to track the location of a person in need of a help; after a call is triggered we know exactly where the person is located. On the other hand, the GoodSAM Responder app continuously sends locational updates to our server to allow the location of volunteer doctors/first-aiders to be tracked so they can be notified of any emergencies occurring around them. For more information please refer to "". Which Countries Are Supported ? Our aim is to potentially cover all the large cities around the globe.

Thank so much for being a GoodSAM Responder. It’s getting busy - across the UK, Ireland, Australia and many other countries! We’ve been working away to bring new features! • Single sign on (if your registered email address is the same as GooglePlus, Facebook or Linked in) • Be anonymous, or de-anonymise yourself (under the more tab) to other responders • Set alerts in case you log out (also under more) And there is now an “Organisational” administration system. So, if you are currently registered under “GoodSAM” but actually your local CFR or other organisation is registered on GoodSAM and you work with them, you can register under them. This means they can message and keep in touch with you directly (you can switch over in your profile but you then have to wait while they approve you). Have a chat with the folk in your organisation and suggest they sign up for a free admin account!. Thanks again – keep spreading the word!
