About Mercia Accident Rescue Service
Pre-Hospital Immediate Medical Care For Herefordshire And Worcestershire.
Our responders are all highly trained and experienced Doctors or Advanced Nurse Practitioners who are specially trained to respond on ‘blue lights’
MARS covers H&W to provide advanced medical care to critically ill and injured people.
We support the local Air Ambulances and WMAS MERIT with ground based response and critical interventions
MARS provides the organisational framework within which practitioners can continue to be properly trained and equipped; all this is supported by local fundraising.
MARS has existed since 1983.
All responders hold the Diploma in Immediate Medical Care awarded by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and many hold the Fellowship in Immediate Medical Care.
