What is PHECCs role?

The Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC) regulates the emergency
medical service (EMS) profession in Ireland. Our role is to protect the public.
PHECC is an independent statutory agency with responsibility for standards,
education and training in the field of pre-hospital emergency care. PHECC also
maintain a statutory register of EMS practitioners.

We register qualified practitioners who meet our standards for their training,
professional skills and education. We can take action against health
professionals who fall below these standards. We can also prosecute those
who pretend to be registered.

Health professionals must be registered so you can be sure:

  • they are genuine
  • they meet national standards
  • you are protected


What does this mean for me?

This means that health professionals registered with us are genuine and meet
national standards. This offers you protection if professionals fail to meet these
standards. You can also check with us that a health professional is registered.
