Written answers (Question to Health)

I propose to take Questions Nos. 874 and 876 together.

The Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) is an independent statutory body with responsibility for professional regulation in the area of pre-hospital emergency care including the recognition of professional qualifications.

Accordingly, the Deputy's queries have been referred to PHECC for direct response.
