  24. 24. discussion • In-event health services – Reporting PPR rather than raw patient numbers – Single case studies and the characteristics of patient presentations – The number of health professionals, discipline area, clinical skill level, and duration of the shift was scantly reported
  25. 25. discussion • External health services – Some insight into the impact on ambulance services – Some insight into the impact on hospital services – Not comparable across events
  26. 26. • There is minimal research focusing on the impact of mass gatherings on health services, such as ambulance services and hospitals • More research and evaluation is required to gain a better understanding of this health space • More collaboration between in-event and external health services conclusion
