A selection of our bespoke course customers

Case study 1 – India

We were approached by a Rotary chapter based in the UK managing a project in Goa, India to deliver an adapted Pre-Hospital Emergency Care (PHEC) course to a group of doctors and nurses working within the regional ambulance service. Our team of four flew into Goa and spent the first couple of days getting to know the area, its resources and emergency healthcare infrastructure by day and throughout the evening adapted our teaching material to match local resources and needs.

Over the next 4-days the team delivered a interactive and much appreciated course to 28 local clinicians whose normal mode of learning was extremely formal. The extra day allowed for a paediatric module to be included and for an adaptive assessment process to be delivered. Of the 28 students, 24 were successful and attended a prestigious reception hosted by the Goan Minister of Health to celebrate their success and present certificates.

The UK team’s two days of local preparation were key to the success of the course, ensuring that what was taught matched local resources.

Case study 2 – Cyprus

The British military based in Cyprus provided an emergency ambulance and pre-hospital medical service within the British Sovereign Bases area. Military medical training does not prepare its staff for a predominantly civilian role dealing with the range of emergency care occurring within the dependants and Cypriot civilian populations.

Our instructors provided a range of bespoke training for more than 10-years (until the closure off the service), returning twice a year, to deliver initial and refresher training as well as more specialist modules needed by the emergency medical teams comprising medical technicians, nurses, doctors and on occasions other staff (more recently including RAF paramedics). This was rewarding work that saw regular impact as the ambulances and the medical staff were called upon across the sovereign base areas.

Without the specialist training delivered by our teams of instructors, familiar with the combined military and civilian focused roles, emergency care would have been a much greater challenge to this isolated community.
