Yes, NHS Ambulance Trusts have varying policies and different levels of training but do not intentionally dispatch a CFR to an emergency that would be considered unsafe for them.

These would be incidents such as known violent situations or something they have not been trained to deal with.

CFRs do not respond to severe trauma incidents such as fatal traffic accidents, shootings, stabbings etc.

Some Trusts have patient age limits and so would not send CFR’s to infants, some train CFRs to deal with heart attacks and breathing problems with infants, some only dispatch CFRs to children over 8 or 12 – it all depends on your local trust.
