About us

Get to know more about EMSSA and how we work.

EMSSA represents a group of enthusiastic healthcare professionals dedicated to the development of quality emergency care throughout South Africa. Emergency Medicine has only recently been recognized as an independent speciality, although this country has always had a large burden of patients presenting to our pre-hospital and hospital emergency services with experienced and passionate personnel rendering much needed care.

These are truly exciting times for everyone involved with emergency care. Have a look at our website for recent developments and to see how you can become more involved.
