British and transnational organisations & institutions influencing the development of EM in Ireland
Many of the original cohort of doctors working in Accident & Emergency Medicine, later Emergency Medicine in Ireland were members of what were primarily British organisations. This reflected the training of many of these doctors in the UK, the close historical ties between Britain and Ireland and the absence of sufficient numbers to develop parallel bodies in Ireland.
Founded in 1967. It was retitled British Association for Accident & Emergency Medicine (BAEM) in 1990.
Later retitled British Association for Emergency Medicine (BAEM) in 2004
The intercollegiate Faculty of Accident & Emergency Medicine became the College of Emergency Medicine in January 2006. Prior to then it had a complex structure with the UK Surgical & Medical Royal Colleges and the College of Aneasthetists as its parents.
Created by the merger of the earlier College of Emergency Medicine and the British Association for Emergency Medicine in February 2008. It was granted a Royal Charter in February 2008 and is currently seeking the Royal appellation.
Its structure involves National Boards for the devolved countries within the United Kingdom (Northern Ireland, Scotland & Wales), Regional Boards for the English regions and a National Board for Ireland.
