Safety advisory groups

The request was partially successful.

Dear East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

1. Can you advise if your organisation still uses the outdated and out of print HSE document HSG195 to determine the medical cover required for events or if you now make use of the latest and recommended "Purple guide" (

2. If the former, please provide the reason and any supporting documentation for using outdated material.

3. Please provide details of the clinical qualifications of those who represent your organisation on the safety advisory groups and provide "advice" to event organisers and medical providers for the following areas:

a) All Derbyshire Safety Advisory Groups
b) All Nottinghamshire Safety Advisory Groups
c) All Leicestershire Safety Advisory Groups
d) All Lincolnshire Safety Advisory Groups
e) All Northamptonshire Safety Advisory Groups.

I do not require individual names, just the evidence that those who represent on thee groups are clinically qualified and competent to give advice to qualified event medical providers.

Yours faithfully,

Melanie Croft

FOI, East Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust
