Tactical Medical Support to UK Counter-Terrorism: Filling the Therapeutic Vacuum
Niall Aye Maung discusses various medical responses to terrorist events in the UK. Niall explores how the concept of terrorism has evolved, and how these paradigm shifts have demanded changes in the way ‘medicine’ reacts.
Niall joined the Army as a doctor in 2005 and went on to complete Commando and military parachute training. He has planned and provided medical support to UK military operations around the world, usually supporting isolated teams with few resources and prolonged evacuation times.
Trained as a GP, most of his work focusses around pre-hospital and CBRN medicine.
