3-Day Urgent Medical Care Certificate

November 13 @ 8:00 am - November 15 @ 5:00 pm


Workshop leads and guest speakers include Dr Simon Stockley, NICE National Lead for Sepsis, Prof John Howarth, Dr Colville Laird, BASICs Scotland.

Occurrence and demand for urgent care in the community, prior to hospital care, is increasing. This may be in a rural setting, but is just as likely in urban surroundings, when delayed access to secondary care can make the clinician feel very remote and isolated. This 3-day course is designed for professionals working in urgent or non-scheduled care who need to enhance forward care by starting pathways for the emergency patient.

The course is taught at the National Centre for Remote and Rural Medicine, by a team led by Dr Stuart Maitland-Knibb. Stuart is an ex-military medical officer with extensive experience in primary care & emergency medicine both in hospital and pre-hospital. Specialising in urgent unplanned care, he has worked in the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) and pre-hospital settings for many years and continues to fly a day a week in a Clinical Supervisor position. A responder for BASICS, Stuart is also an Examiner for the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh for the Dip IMC and FIMC. He remains a medical officer for UK International Search and Rescue.
