Years of training and refinement have gone into making the service what it is today.
But that does not mean we stand still. By constantly reviewing the way we work, researching new techniques and learning from others, we continue to improve the level of care we offer.
Our courses in pre-hospital medicine are over-subscribed and attract applicants from all over the world. We currently offer two courses:
- Pre-hospital Emergency Anaesthesia (PHEA)
- Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine Crew Course (PHEMCC)
But our commitment training doesn’t stop there, and that’s why we are developing the North of England’s first centre of excellence in pre-hospital medicine.Read more
Our aim is to be a world leader in pre-hospital care. To achieve this, we have committed to a programme of research and development. Pioneering ground-breaking techniques and equipment are being brought to this region, enabled by your support.Read more
How we are called out
We coordinate our emergency response from our airdesk at Progress House in Eaglescliffe. By keeping an eye on 999 calls as they come in, speaking to road crew paramedics on scene, and liaising with fellow emergency services, we can quickly build a picture of the ongoing incident – and if we are needed.Read more
