Accepted practice and relevant guidelines from specialist medical training in emergency medicine, intensive care medicine and anaesthesia.
Internally authorised Standard Operating Procedures which we aim to regularly review and update.
All of our doctors are registered (either vocationally or generally) with the Medical Council of New Zealand.Vocationally registered doctors are specialists in either:
Emergency Medicine (Fellowship of the Australasian College of Emergency Medicine - ACEM)
Intensive Care Medicine (Fellowship of the College of Intensive Care Medicine - CICM)
Anaesthesia (Fellowship of the Australia and New Zealand College of Anaesthesia – ANZCA)
We are also the only aeromedical service in the country providing a training fellowship in Pre-Hospital and Retrieval Medicine. This training fellowship is accredited for training doctors with the Australasian College of Emergency Medicine.
We look forward to supporting Paramedicine as a registered health care profession in 2020.
