Emergency Medicine, First Aid

Accident and Emergency Services The development of an accident center in every major city was urged by English orthopedic surgeon, Sir Robert Jones (1858–1933) soon after World War I. The first accident service in England was  started at Birmingham by an Australian, William Gissane (1898–1981) in 1941. Known as Birmingham Accident Hospital the service was expanded later to include other emergencies. Widespread dissatisfaction with the poor quality of accident services and their poor level of staffing later led to two reviews: Casualty Services and their Setting, by Nuffield Provincial Hospitals Trust in 1960 and Accident Services of Great Britain and Ireland, by the British Medical Association in 1961. Anton Freiherr von Eiselberg(1860–1939) of Austria was a pioneer in establishing accident departments in Europe. He founded several accident and emergency departments within the university surgical clinics in Vienna in 1909. Ironically he died in a railway accident.
