Ben Gilmour navigated the often chaotic ambulance services of the cities of Pakistan to complete a study of pre-hospital care in the country. Reporting on his return in February 2010, he describes how security issues forced him to shift focus from the tribal areas of Pakistan to the cities. Ben assisted in training of ambulance officers, consulted on the development of services, and identified challenges in improving the quality of care provided.
Ben was previously involved in the development of the first advanced life support ambulance service in Lahore, Pakistan. He is also director of “Son of a Lion” – winner of the Independent Spirit Award in 2008. The film also won Best Music at the Inside Film Awards in 2008 and the soundtrack was nominated for an ARIA award in 2009.
