Paramedicine & Medical Transport
Within Central Health there is a combination of private, community and hospital based ambulance services providing emergency pre-hospital care 24/7 to clients, patients and communities. The region extends from Charlottetown in the east, Fogo Island in the northeast, Harbour Breton in the south to Baie Verte in the west.
The Paramedicine and Medical Transport (PM&MT) Program is comprised of approximately 120 frontline staff with levels of training ranging from Emergency Medical Responders to Primary Care Paramedics to Advanced Care Paramedics. These staff practice in the pre-hospital environment, as well as within the emergency departments throughout the region. Staff are required to adhere to the legislation, policies and standards as developed by the Provincial Medical Oversight, the Department of Health and Community Services and Central Health.
