We are pleased to introduce the new Chief Executive of BASICS Scotland Lucy Aitchison. She is taking over the reins of the organisation from Prof. Colville Laird, who is retiring at Christmas. Lucy comes from a background of over 20-years work in charity leadership and management, the majority of which has been in health-related charities.
Lucy said “I am delighted to be part of the BASICS team, and I look forward to helping ensure the fantastic work continues. I’d like to pay tribute to Colville and the incredible journey he has taken BASICS Scotland and other stakeholders on, to improve the field of pre-hospital emergency care. As well as the great staff team, I’d like to acknowledge the importance of all the volunteers who give their time and expertise to BASICS Scotland. Whether as a Responder, Course Instructor or Board Member I am truly humbled by the commitment everyone is willing to give. My thanks to you all – and wishing everyone a happy and healthy Christmas!” ... See MoreSee Less

Our “Every Second Counts” dinner and auction was held at the Marcliffe Hotel in Aberdeen.
What a success it was, raising £65,000. This will enable us to equip another 16 BASICs Scotland trained GPs, nurses or paramedics with life saving equipment and vehicle locators enabling them to be called to respond to life threatening incidents in rural communities by the Ambulance service.
The evening was filled with laughter and tears. Laughter from @GavinHastings @fredmacaulay who make a great double act, and tears whilst listening to the heart breaking personal account from @fionablack who has struggled back to health following a head on collision in which tragically her died. Fiona and her partner Martin have been to hell and back and we warmly commend them on the courage that they have to tell their story.
We also heard Prof George Youngson talk about the need for the right people at the right time in the right place with the right life saving equipment #4rightssaveslives
Thank you to all who contributed to making this event the success it was. Too many of you to mention. Photos to follow ... See MoreSee Less
