Now in her second year of medical school, former Wyke science A level student, Eric McCabe has been busy volunteering on the Pre-hospital care programme, attending Category 1 and 2 medical emergencies such as cardiac arrests, unconsciousness and chest pains primarily in Hull. Additionally, her team had been further trained to assess patients who had fallen down and assist them in getting back on their feet.
The Hull York Medical School (HYMS) Pre-hospital care programme, in collaboration with the Yorkshire Ambulance Service offers medical students at HYMS further educational experience in the field of pre-hospital medicine.
Last year, Erin and the team of 9 other HYMS medical students attended 188 incidents, ranging from cardiac arrests and diabetic emergencies to falls and fractures. Altogether, the team volunteered 900 plus hours of their time to help the local community.
