A tentative step into the online world of Emergency Medicine. Around the site you will find information about ED teaching in Antrim, plus other stuff like the RCEM curriculum, our Journal Club and some EM content with (hopefully) educational benefit. In the spirit of FOAM feel free to use and share!
We have a handbook for our Doctors containing site specific information and for that reason is not publicly available via the tab above.
Send an email to admin at gcs3.co.uk if you need access to the handbook and you work with us!
