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.
