In the last 12 months, we have received a small number of letters on the role of BASICs in emergency response. There was an adjournment debate in June 2008 and an Early Day Motion tabled by Mr. Oaten.

We think BASICs doctors provide an excellent service and regional strategic health authorities, who are responsible for trauma care in their areas are examining how pre-hospital care can be improved including the sort of services provided by BASICs doctors.
