Our Doctors

Our volunteer doctors provide high level advanced care to the local community. They support East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) with their extended skill sets. They deliver hospital emergency department interventions at the scene, whether that be roadside, in the home, children’s playgrounds, in rural terrain or in city centres. Basically, wherever they are needed – always in their spare time and always unpaid.
