Community Medics' vision is to provide first world emergency medical care, free of charge, to all people in need. Our highly trained team of emergency medical personnel aim to deliver a rapid response to all medical emergencies, to all members of the community - regardless of their income status. We strive to improve the standard of care for emergency medicine in South Africa and relieve the burden placed on state services. All our volunteers are trained professionals and are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA).
Our Service operates a 24-hour contact centre to field any medical emergency. Once a call has been received, the Community Medics response vehicle is dispatched and coordinates with other available services. Community Medics will stabilise the patient whilst awaiting the arrival of an ambulance. All the services we provide are free of charge. The objective of Community Medics is not to duplicate existing ambulance services, but rather to assist in a limited resource environment, to prevent long delays in emergency care that could have dire consequences.
