About this cause
We offer experienced specialist volunteer doctors, assisting frontline emergency service colleagues, as well as attending medical and trauma emergencies in the community. We are senior decision makers carrying enhanced pain relief, additional equipment and we're able to undertake specialist surgical procedures. Our service is available 365 days a year, 24/7 to help ease pain, relieve suffering and save lives.
How this cause brings people in the community together
We have established relationships within the community, and we train and educate others. We assist emergency services whilst under extreme pressures and fellow medics feel supported having a specialist BASICS Devon doctor with them. We also can reach isolated and vulnerable individuals fast and are experienced in working with hospices, to offer care in peoples' homes for terminal conditions.
