The planning and safe delivery of an event whether it is a large or small involves a great deal of work for the event organiser who has prime responsibility for protecting the health, safety & welfare of everyone working at, or attending, the event.
By ensuring that there is an appropriate level of medical, first aid and ambulance provision at an event, Event Organisers can minimise the impact of their event on the local NHS (HSC) services.
The Northern Ireland Ambulance Service does not routinely provide medical services to public events. There are a number of Voluntary and Private Organisations available which do provide these services.
Event Organisers, who are following good practice as set out in The Purple Guide (2014) (www.thepurpleguide.co.uk ) or other relevant guidance documents, may wish to contact the Northern Ireland Ambulance Service HSC Trust (NIAS) to inform us of their event.
If you have responsibility for organising a public event, NIAS would be grateful if you would click the below button, read the information provided which will then allow you to complete and submit an Event Information Questionnaire.
NIAS can also be informed of events by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
These processes are not designed to take away from the good relations that many event organisers already have with NIAS, but rather is designed to complement it, allowing us to become aware of events at a much earlier stage.
The Northern Ireland Ambulance Service HSC Trust can only act on the information provided by the Event Organiser and cannot accept any liabilities in relation to errors or omissions.
