EMAS Partnership Meeting - 18 June 2019 

The LMC, CCG and local GPs have had an initial meeting with the senior management of EMAS.

Various issues were being discussed including:

  1. Better partnership working
  2. Better understanding of and the concerns around accepting clinical accountability  when EMAS is on scene with a patient and advice is requested  from a GP re ongoing care arrangements or treatment
  3. Time of any response from a GP and is a GP always the right person to call
  4. Better use of IT to aid EMAS eg accessing SCR and a care plan
  5. Developing an algorithm for paramedics to follow for most the appropriate patient care when they are on scene
  6. Direct referral to acute specialities by paramedics where appropriate rather than admission via ED

Further meetings are scheduled

If there are any specific or broader issues you would like us to raise, please feed these into the LMC office
