Having been the first shopping Centre in Scotland to have a Medical 1st response team which directly supports the efforts of the Scottish ambulance service. We have now completed another first in being the first shopping centre to have trained staff on site to be able to administer Naloxone.
Naloxone is Drug which comes in the form of a nasal spray or an injected doze which can be given to someone that is suspected of having had an overdose; this drug can temporarily reverse the effects of an overdose, which can save lives.
The Centre have once again partnered with AB Medical in providing the nessacery training for the team, Cheryl Jones owner of AB Medical commented: “I’m delighted to be doing another project with our friends at the Trinity Shopping Centre, they have been a great supporter of AB Medical and Dinky Doctors, and hearing about our recent training with our own team on the use of Naloxone they were keen to find out more and how to get involved with their team.”
Trinity Shopping Centre General Manger Linda Stewart says: "We are thrilled that we as a team can provide another first for the shopping centre, having fully trained staff being able to administer this potentially lifesaving drug. It’s fantastic that we can add this to our 1st response lifesaving equipment."
In the winter of 2019, we also installed a 24 hour accessible community defibrillator at the Old Union Street entrance along with Rainbow city taxis. This can be accessed by dialling 999 stating the location.
