Continuation Training - Level 7 / 8 PHEM Providers

Enhanced Skills Training & Accreditation


Appropriately experienced Clinical Team Leads may choose to undertake enhanced skills training in Level 7/8 PHEM competencies such as the provision of Pre-hospital Emergency Anaesthesia and Advanced Pre-Hospital Surgical Techniques. The team works in partnership with our other local prehospital services to support the delivery of this training and the ensure the necessary level of supervision.


Clinical Leads are encouraged to work towards gaining the necessary pre-requisites to be eligible to sit the Fellowship in Immediate Medical Care (FIMC) examination from the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh and subsequent application for level 7 or 8 PHEM practitioner status with the Faculty of Prehospital Care.


A number of our senior faculty are accredited PHEM Educational Supervisors and/or FIMC examiners with the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh, and so we are able to fully support Clinical Team Leads wishing to follow this training route.
