About the British Association for Immediate Care

The British Association for Immediate Care is a UK-wide charity that was founded in 1977. It is a membership association and an internationally recognised leading provider of specialist pre-hospital care educational courses.

The Association’s membership encompasses medical, nursing and paramedical professionals who provide voluntary pre-hospital critical-care to emergency patients through a network of affiliated immediate care schemes working with the NHS Ambulance trusts in their localities. The Association also includes members from outside these professions who have an interest in, and practice pre-hospital care as part of their employment (such as with the ambulance service, the military medical services, sports medicine, allied emergency services etc) or voluntary service provision (including with the major first aid organisations, in search and rescue services etc).
