Enhanced Care Teams
Enhanced care teams ( ECT )
Enhanced care teams ( ECT ), consisting of a senior pre-hospital emergency medicine doctor and a critical care paramedic, are active within the region to provide advanced critical care interventions and clinical support .
• If a patient has sustained major trauma they should be conveyed according
to the Trauma Triage Tool as rapidly as possible .
• ECTs can be requested by the attending crew via the Critical Care Desk in
Ambulance Control .
• Delays at scene whilst awaiting an ECT should be avoided .
• If necessary the attending crew should make progress towards the Trauma Unit ( TU ) / Major Trauma Centre ( MTC ), informing and updating the Critical Care Desk .
