Wilderness and Emergency Medicine at Leicester

We're Leicester's wilderness and emergency medicine society, a friendly bunch of outdoorsy people who run sessions on practical aspects of pre-hospital, wilderness and emergency medicine for everyone from years one to five.

What would you do if you were the first person on the scene at a road traffic collision? A friend collapses in front of you? You witness a child having a serious allergic reaction in a local cafe? Our pre-hospital and emergency medicine sessions are here to give you the knowledge you need.

And come with us on social trips out and about around the Midlands!
