BASICS Dorset is an Emergency Doctor service which works to save the lives of critically-ill patients in Dorset. Our medics work together with the Ambulance Service to treat patients wherever and whenever they need help out in the community. A serious road crash, work accident, cardiac arrest or sudden grave illness can leave a life hanging in the balance. When this happens, BASICS doctors can be called out to use their skills and knowledge to make life-saving interventions before the patient reaches hospital.

Like many other BASICS doctors, our medics in Dorset are volunteers. When not treating patients in the county's hospitals and GP practices they offer their time "on-call" to respond quickly when required any time of day or night. Although time is given freely, we rely on public donations to provide and maintain equipment, vehicles and to train new medics.

Our medics offer their time and skills as volunteers to provide emergency care to our patients. However, we rely on charity to providing training, equipment and ongoing support to allow our doctors to carry out their vital work. Please click on the DONATE button and show your support today.
