Condolences from St John Ambulance Ireland
Friday, 29 August 2014 14:05

On behalf of St. John Ambulance Ireland I wish to express our deep sadness
at the news of the passing of Dr Geoff King, Director of the Pre-Hospital
Emergency Care Council.

St. John Ambulance, as a voluntary charitable organisation, deeply
appreciated Dr King’s commitment to working with the voluntary sector as
he led PHECC in its mission of developing and regulating standards,
education and training in the field of pre-hospital emergency care in
Ireland.  In leading PHECC, Dr King showed great tenacity, prescience,
diplomacy and skill in charting a course that enabled the full-time,
part-time and voluntary sectors work together in mutual support to enhance
the standards of pre-hospital care delivered to the citizens of Ireland.
His leadership of PHECC enabled St John Ambulance to collaborate
successfully with PHECC in the key areas of both Training and Service
Delivery.  Dr King engaged with us with great good humour at all times,
representing PHECC as a “partner” in driving the ongoing improvement of
pre-hospital care in Ireland.  He will be greatly missed by our colleagues
and friends in PHECC and, most of all, of course, by his family.

On behalf of St John Ambulance Ireland I wish to extend our deepest
condolences to all in PHECC and to Dr King’s family both here in Ireland
and back home in Australia. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a Anam.

John Hughes
