JRCALC Clinical Practice Guidelines

2016 coverThe 2016 UK Ambulance Services Clinical Practice Guidelines provide guidance for NHS paramedics, although the principles are applicable to the work of all pre-hospital clinicians.

These JRCALC guidelines are an important part of clinical risk management and ensure uniformity in the delivery of high quality patient care.

As such, they form the basis for UK paramedic training and education.

Since the 2016 edition, the UK Ambulance Services Clinical Practice Guidelines has also been available as an app, iCPG, which includes the full 2016 edition and the 2017 Supplementary Guidelines.
