      The recent UK Department of Health publication “Taking Healthcare to the Patient: Transforming NHS Ambulance Services”1 recommended that the Department of Health should commission a programme of work to build the evidence base for the delivery of emergency and unscheduled prehospital care. As a starting point, the Department of Health commissioned the 999 EMS Research Forum to review the evidence base for the delivery of emergency prehospital care; to identify gaps in the evidence base; and to prioritise topics for future research. https://emj.bmj.com/content/26/8/549.
