The opportunity to gain experience in pre-hospital emergency medicine as flight doctors with charity air ambulances in England, was the main reason for two Irish medics to move across the water. They spoke to ‘Emergency Services Ireland’ about their journey to date, also pointing to the need for similar structures to be set up by helicopter emergency medical services in this country.
