Several Faculty members have also edited the UK localised edition of the Pre Hospital Trauma Life Support Course and Tactical Emergency Casualty Care texts as well as other remote area medical texts.

Now in our seventh year, the organisation has grown from strength to strength. Our client list speaks for itself.
