The Welsh Institute of Emergency and Unscheduled Care

The Welsh Institute of Emergency and Unscheduled Care (WIEUC) will provide a forum for academics, leaders of strategic healthcare planning, service providers and service users to collaborate and discuss out-of-hospital healthcare and how challenges facing its delivery may be addressed.

WIEUC’s Vision

The Institute will function as a focus for emergency and unscheduled care education, research and strategic influence within Wales and in the wider context of emergency and unscheduled care practice in the UK, EU and internationally. The driving force is the development of paramedic excellence and the benefits that will bring to healthcare delivery.
