First National Ambulatory Care Report

A new patient report – the Ambulatory Care Report (ACR) – was launched week end of 28th June at a music event at Slane Castle, Co. Meath. 255 reports were completed which captured data of patients who received care for minor injuries and were attended to by a responder or a practitioner. 

The national ACR will replace the minor injury reports which are currently in use.
ACRs and Completion Guides have been circulated to all appropriate PHECC recognised institutions. If you are a PHECC recognised institution, have not received the ACR and have a requirement for it please feel free to contact

To view the ACR and completion guide on the PHECC web site follow the link on the ‘News and Events’ section on :

If the patient requires any care or management other than minor injury care the PCR should be used.

By completing the Ambulatory Care Report you are contributing in a very significant way towards improving Health Information and assisting in the continuum of patient care. Quality health information is the corner stone to ensuring that appropriate care at the appropriate location will be delivered to the patient, and that education and training received.

We would like your feedback on the PCR

The PCR Edition 3 has been in circulation since February of this year and we would be very grateful for your feedback on it.

Shortly you will receive an email from us with a link to a questionnaire which we would like you to complete and return to us.

For those of you who would prefer a hard copy we will post questionnaires to each ambulance station, including a stamped addressed envelope for return.
