Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care
Pre-hospital care is a well-established branch of medicine, now practised by a broad range of practitioners from first aiders, paramedics, doctors, nurses, first responders, voluntary aid workers and remote medics including multi agency teams such as police, fire and armed forces.
As the face of pre-hospital emergency medicine changes, the Faculty's aim is to set and maintain clinical standards for all practitioners in this evolving specialty.
