However, the project rapidly developed, gaining interest from local emergency services and a year later, has achieved the following:
- Development of Arran Resilience: liaison between emergency teams, integrated training and development of complex/major incident plans.
- BASICS GP governance: improving the links with EMDC/ambulance control and an audit of emergency & personal safety equipment.
- Simulation Training: initially by visit from the NES Clinical Skills Unit and subsequent development of local simulation training workshops.
Conflict of interest: the AIM CARE project was carried out as part of a GP Rural Fellowship undertaken by the Editor of RuralGP.com.
