In addition to providing training courses, we co-ordinate local Responder Schemes throughout remote and rural Scotland and work closely with Scottish Ambulance Service, the Emergency Medical Retrieval Service (EMRS) and hospital based pre-hospital care teams based in Scotland.
BASICS Scotland Responders are rural GP’s, Nurses and Paramedics who have received additional training through BASICS Scotland. Each of our Responders is provided with equipment including a Sandpiper Bag and access to a defibrillator. Many Responders have also been issued with an automatic Vehicle Locator System to allow contact with their local Ambulance Control and tracking of their vehicle’s location.
