Regional role for consultant

Consultant in Emergency Medicine at King’s Mill Hospital Mr Vikas Sodiwala has been elected as an Advanced Life Support (ALS) regional representative for the Resuscitation Council UK.

The council leads research into life saving techniques, and is the expert body in resuscitation medicine.

Mr Sodiwala’s new role will see him visiting ALS training centres across the East Midlands to ensure the high standards of the council are maintained and to help support centres where necessary.
The ALS course represents one of the UK’s peak training courses in emergency care and is recognised as a national credential for healthcare professionals who regularly deal with cardiac arrest emergencies.

Mr Sodiwala was chosen for his extensive experience and knowledge of advanced life support; he has been teaching ALS courses for over 10 years.

He said: “I am delighted to have been elected to this new post and am excited to work with colleagues across the region to help deliver essential life-saving training.”

Regional assessors visit each centre to inspect all aspects of the training every four years.
