The St John Ambulance is a charity service that provides a range of health and wellbeing services all over New Zealand. It acts independently of the government and hospital boards, but provides additional medical services to the population in both health and health-related fields. These services include; emergency and non-emergency ambulance services for approximately 90% of New Zealand’s population; emergency care and first aid at public events; telephone support to the lonely and the housebound; transport for people to their health appointments; and first aid training services to the community.
The elective with St John is based in the Auckland chapter of the charity and students can expect to see services similar to those St John provide in other countries. It is an interesting elective for those who want to be involved in the community side of medicine but do not want to be restricted to a general practice setting.
St John also runs a youth programme where young New Zealanders from six to eighteen years can learn first aid, health care, self-discipline and general life skills in their communities.
