The Beep Fund Ltd, which celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2019, is a Cumbrian based charity, which brings emergency medical care to the patient. Whether that is on the roadside at the scene of a road traffic accident or in your home during a life-threatening emergency, our team of volunteer BEEP Doctors are on call 24/7 to provide enhanced clinical care in medical emergencies.
Providing care and intervention previously only available once patient reaches hospital
Not funded by the NHS, The BEEP Fund is run by volunteers and an unpaid team of BEEP Doctors
By donating or volunteering, your support helps to save lives in our local community
Paramedics are very well trained and able to deal with the vast majority of emergencies that they are called to; however, the BEEP Doctors have specialist training in enhanced pre-hospital emergency care and provide an extra level of medical intervention not normally available until the patient reaches hospital.

Our team of ten doctors cover the majority of Cumbria from Workington in the west, up to the Scottish Borders and down to Kendal in the south. The BEEP Doctors attend most major incidents in the county, including road traffic collisions, farming accidents or other life threatening medical emergencies. Over the years, the team have saved numerous lives and have become an integral part of the emergency services.
