Training & Development

Magpas Air Ambulance Dr Adriana and Paramedic Andy during their training
“Our training aims to provide senior doctors and paramedics with the skills that expertly and safely meet the needs of the critically ill patients, wherever they may be. By giving patients the initial treatment they need on-scene, often using skills more commonly found in emergency departments, the medical team can reduce suffering, limit further damage, and ultimately we can help to improve patient outcome.”

Doctor Simon Lewis, Magpas Air Ambulance Medical Director
At Magpas Air Ambulance we pride ourselves on our training. Our charity piloted the first Pre-Hospital Emergency Medicine (PHEM) training scheme for doctors and in 2014, we were the first to provide an accredited pre-hospital emergency training scheme nationally. All of our medics are highly skilled – most of them have at least 10 years’ experience in their healthcare environments prior to joining us. As we are renowned in the medical world, clinicians travel across the UK and sometimes even across the world, to train with Magpas Air Ambulance.

Our Courses

“The Magpas Air Ambulance training programme is based upon the fundamental principal of professional training for professional people. The course is designed to build on and support learning and training needs in the sub-specialty of PHEM. Currently, it lasts for 8 days and involves interactive lectures and simulated training with our full body human simulators. The faculty consists of Consultants, senior doctors and paramedics with people acting in the role of ambulance crews and bystanders. The idea is to help our team members really immerse themselves in the scenario and the operating environment within which we are expecting them to work. All of our simulator based cases are based on real cases, real equipment, with real pathology and real clinical challenges. 

“After completing the Magpas Air Ambulance PHEM training course, every member of our enhanced medical team must go through a process of supervision shifts before they are allowed to form the doctor-paramedic team on their own. This is to make sure that not only do our patients receive the best possible level of care, but our clinicians are completely comfortable in the role.”

 

Natalie Church, Director of Operations
