Written answers (Question to Health)

The Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) is the independent statutory body with responsibility for the standards of training and education in pre-hospital emergency care. Accordingly, I have asked PHECC to respond to the Deputy on this matter directly, as soon as possible.
