How it all began:
The Prehospital Care Programme developed from the ambitions of an individual medical student at Barts and The London, Emma Lightbody. Emma selected Barts and The London School of Medicine because of an attraction to Prehospital Care. After spending a year as an observer with the London Ambulance Service and several months working closely with LAA (both in extra-curricular time), Emma was keen to expand her personal contacts into an academic programme linked to the medical school which other students could benefit from. The initiation of a Pilot PCP was in November 2007, and this has been a great success, leading to further expansion of the team.
