In 2008 the original Framework for A High Performing Air Ambulance was published. It articulated the UK air ambulance operations and detailed critical core areas of competence and how operations were managed. The New 2013 publication updates all information covered in the 2008 publication and outlines the following:

1.   What is Pre-Hospital Care
2.   Background to Air Ambulances
3.   Trustees and Governance Models
4.   Clinical Standards and Governance
5.   Operational Management
6.   Dispatch
7.   Staff and Training
8.   Conclusions

The 2013 document also corrects a number of outdated assertions and is now leading the Association to develop a new suite of reference works . Click here to download the new e-version Framework for A High Performing Air Ambulance.
