The director responsible for all volunteers is and has been running the organisation to suithis own needs, which at times are in conflict with accepted medical practice. The administration ofdrugs during cardiac arrest procedures by medical officers, for example, has been discouragedbecause lay members of the organisation are unable to participate in this activity.
