Specialist Paramedic Practitioner Trainees
There is a 15 month degree course for Paramedics who have been qualified for more than 5 years and wish to develop their skills further. Paramedics with additional education and training are equipped for greater patient assessment and management. They will be able to diagnose a wider range of conditions and treat many minor injuries and illnesses. During the course they have a 2 month GP training practice placement with workplace based assessment.
We have hosted 2 trainees to date and have scheduled further placements this autumn.
Our paramedics work with our Urgent Access Clinic staff; Duty doctor and Minor Illness nurse.
