Dear Maritime and Coastguard Agency,

I am writing to request information on paramedics working on HM Coastguard helicopters. Specifically I would like to know:

- What is the scope of practice of your paramedics? (Skills and drugs they are allowed to use. Please include any advanced skills if applicable.)

- What drugs do they carry?

- Are your paramedics allowed to intubate? If so, how are they required to demonstrate and maintain competency?

- What medical equipment / bags (and contents) / medical devices do your paramedics use and carry?

- On average, how many ill or injured patients are taken to hospital by your paramedics each year?

Yours faithfully,

Bob Smith

HM Coastguard, Maritime and Coastguard Agency
