Nicolas Mattock




This paper examines the published evidence on police first aid training, the legal context of police first aid and ambulance dispatch, police decision making, provision of pre-hospital care in various models and the transportation of casualties to hospital other than by ambulance.  It aims to encourage those involved in police forces’ clinical governance to consider the matter locally and proposes a model that may assist with such consideration and the formulation of policies and procedures if they are deemed necessary.
