Welcome to BASICS

The British Association for Immediate Care has championed the development of pre-hospital emergency medicine since it was formed in 1977. Today we are forging strong working relationships with our colleagues in BASICS Scotland and the Faculty of Pre-hospital Care so that together we can provide the highest quality of medical knowledge and skill to those who need it most, and all at the accident scene, day or night, fair weather or foul. The members of this Charity blend in amongst the paid Emergency Services, working together as a team. Whether you wish to join, or merely learn more then read on.
