AIM CARE: A model of rural prehospital care

The AIM CARE Project was set up in July 2010 with the objective of improving the link between BASICS GPs and ambulance control on Arran.

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.
