Details of the Request
We are attempting to repeat this study to investigate how the provision of prehospital enhanced care has changed over the last 5 years.
Please could you answer the following questions, as part of a Freedom of Information Request. For clarity, these questions do not refer to a mass casualty/major incident. This survey refers to incidents where additional medical assistance is requested by the ambulance service, outside of a formal major incident plan.
- What staff members (types of clinicians) are required to attend incidents of a severe nature where advanced medical procedures are required or requested in the pre-hospital environment, specifically the use of anaesthetics and advances airway management?
- When such assistance has been requested what is your average response time and does it depend on availability of a volunteer doctor (e.g. working for the Basics, Magpas or other like charities) or do you have NHS funded clinicians who are able to be deployed?
- What time of day is the full desired response available?
Please give a breakdown for each Emergency Department within your trust.
