HEMS transport time

This article raises the old conundrum of time vs distance, to HEMS or not to HEMS, that is the question.

It would be interesting to see a study conducted in the U.K. to include other factors such as:

  • The impact in time when transferring to landing sites away from hospital
  • The impact from hospital delays in availability of ambulances for pick up
  • #everysecondcounts #teamworking
  • Human Factors in Hazardous Environments

    The Human Factors in Hazardous Environments course develops your knowledge and skills in the application of Human Factors (HF) principles in a variety of hazardous environments that you may encounter when providing care or rescue activities.

    You learn through a mixture of online learning and a 5 day workshop where you will be “thrown in” to environments including:

    • Water Rescue
    • Working at Height
    • Confined and Restricted Spaces
    • Tactical Considerations
    • Fire and Rescue Searches

    We have a few spaces left on the course running 30th July – 3rd August but if you want to take part you’ll need to book by 20th July to allow time for the online activities.
