To give you the best training possible, we always try to incorporate relevant and up to date research findings, techniques or indeed equipment.

So with this in mind we’re adjusting to the protocols of the National Ambulance Service and have purchased a new Combiboard stretcher. This is a combination of an orthopaedic stretcher and the older spinal board.

For anyone who has already completed the Advanced course, you will know this type of equipment is only used in conjunction with a vacuum mattress. This is to give the patient maximum comfort despite their injuries, until medical staff have fully assessed the damage that may have been caused by the crash.
