EMICS is a network of volunteer doctors with specialist training in pre-hospital emergency medicine who assist East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) at the scene of life threatening emergencies. EMICS doctors provide advanced specialist skills at the point of accident or injury, where they are needed most.
“Thank you for saving my little girl. Six years on and we will never forget the quick response of Dr Matt Woods, we owe you everything!”
Our volunteer doctors turn out at all hours, in all weather conditions, 365 days a year. This is all done on a voluntary basis, responding from home in their own vehicles, around normal work commitments.
Our doctors are dispatched alongside usual NHS resources to the most serious incidents in the region and arrive at scene carrying all their own kit and medications, funded entirely by the charity.
We deliver critical care interventions on scene
We support our colleagues across the emergency services
We have an extended scope of practice, beyond the usual 999 response, to provide advanced interventions when they are needed
Each doctor is provided with an extensive range of medical equipment. To equip a fully trained volunteer doctor for EMICS costs £20,000. All donations we receive go towards this as we have no central staff costs.
Our doctors use their own cars to get to the scene, equipped with blue lights to enable them to reach emergency situations at speed. They pay for their own car insurance, including the uplift that blue lights incur, as well as funding their own fuel costs.
The Market Harborough Group is a group of volunteers who raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. The health and wellbeing of our supporters, volunteers and people living with and beyond cancer is our top priority.
The Group is celebrating it’s 50th Anniversary in 2021 and have raised many tens of thousands of pounds over those years and is now looking forward to getting back to fundraising all be it very differently in a mainly cashless society. That is why this page is so important to the Group.
The Market Harborough Group of Macmillan Cancer Support is delighted that there is now an INFOPOINT sited at the HOME INSTEAD premises in Market Harborough. Local care provider Home Instead teamed up with The Market Harborough Group to offer a welcoming place to those affected by cancer to get much needed information including where to get financial support and local services along with useful booklets on specific cancers. For many, going to the LRI or accessing the internet is not always easy. The INFOPOINT can be accessed at the Home Instead premises at 32 St Mary’s Road Market Harborough LE16 7DU (next to car park) between 10.30 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday to Friday and 10.30 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Saturday.
