Dispatch centres: what is the right population catchment size?
Scandinavian Journal of Trauma, Resuscitation and Emergency Medicine
Publication types: Journal Article Publication Status: epublish, pdf : COMMENTARY
Literature on medical dispatch is growing, focusing mainly on efficiency (under and overtriage) and dispatch-assisted CPR. But the issue of population catchment size, functional costs and rationalization is rarely addressed. If we can observe a trend toward a decreasing number of dispatch centres in many European countries, there is today no evidence on what is the right catchment size to reach the best balance between quality of services and costs.
