EMICS – East Midlands immediate care scheme - Dr. Tim Gray


Dr. Gray, I know that one of your aims in order to raise awareness of EMICS, and of what you do, is to speak at organisations such as this

On behalf of the vale of Belvoir Rotary club I can confirm that you have certainly done that tonight

You not only travel to the scene of emergency events to help and save lives - without the facilities of a trauma unit and a hospital around you,

You obtain all your income from charitable donations,

On top of this, your trustees and doctors invest their own time in raising funds for the charity,

Whilst they, the doctors are unpaid in giving up their free time; and they cover the cost of their training

Keeping an organisation running of 26 people; whilst at the same time ensuring you have sufficient funding to support all this, is not easy

And we understand that you see a need to increase the level of service provided

It is good to note that your contribution to the community has been recognised by the highest authority in the UK – with an MBE


Some information from the latest news section of the EMICS website: item

  1. Angela will be walking the Leicestershire round, which is the equivalent of walking four marathons over ten days; she will donate all the funds she raises to EMICS.
  2. On the 1st. June there will be a charity gala concert at the Newark palace theatre in aid of EMICS and the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire air ambulance.


Also, entered into the EMICS website, just two testimonials:


From one person – thank you Dr. Chris Press for all his help after our ‘rescue’ from our car during the storm Oscar-flooding in Hathersage.”


From another – “i am running the robin hood half marathon for EMICS because they are one of the reasons my son is alive today.”


Of these two, I can equate particularly with this second one because last February my grandson had a seizure – and our call for help was responded to within minutes.


Thank you, Dr. Gray for being with us tonight and for a very illuminating talk.
