Hi Geoff,

The Charity is a local BASICS scheme where Dr's and Paramedics (with increased skills and equipment) respond in their own time to requests for extended skills at the scene of road accidents/trauma/medical etc, usually at the requests of the ambulance crew on scene.
It will always be needed because no organisation will pay to have staff with extended skills 'hanging around' just in case of an accident, I like the fact it is voluntary, tends to attract the right sort of person
