ABOUT DR. RICHARD MUSWELL

Digital Lead for London’s Physician Response Unit (PRU). The Physician Response Unit is a team from London's Air Ambulance, delivered in partnership with Barts Health, London, United Kingdom.


richard_maxwell.jpgHaving completed a senior clinical fellowship during higher speciality training in Emergency Medicine, he continued with the service in a new role that encompasses all things digital. From implementation of new equipment such as connected computing in the pre-hospital environment, to overseeing the PRU's part in the overarching LAA digital transformation, the role requires a significant understanding of the clinical needs of the service, combined with in-depth understanding of the technologies available.

Point of care investigations are at the heart of the PRU's clinical decision making and how PRU clinicians are able to reliably obtain, interpret in the context of other investigations, act on and communicate those results to other healthcare professionals, is key in maximising the service's input to their care.
