Midlands Air Ambulance creates new online resource


Midlands Air Ambulance, a UK HEMS charity, has shared its own best practices on a brand new clinical governance website. Its aim is to be the leading source of information for clinicians working in the pre-hospital arena. Dr Mark Nash, Clinical Lead for Midlands Air Ambulance, hopes the new website will help improve the low volume of online resources available to the air ambulance community. “We believe our new website will be welcomed by a broad range of audiences, including doctors and paramedics who work in the pre-hospital arena,” he added.

The resource can be found via the HEMS charity’s website and has been developed in collaboration with its key shareholder West Midlands Ambulance Service. The site includes information on: leading clinical research trials; HEMS case scenarios; useful reference papers; air ambulance resources; standard operating procedures; and an area on aircrew training and recruitment. It also has an area where former patients can provide feedback about their care and recovery.

Dr Nash concludes: “Patient care will always be at the heart of what we do. By sharing with and learning from our fellow clinicians, we can collectively ensure the patient comes first. This is why certain sections of the new website include areas for feedback and comment, and we’re encouraging our peers to join in the conversation.”
