The pre-hospital environment of health care is often unpredictable, and as a paramedic practitioner you would have to be dynamic with your decision-making, aptitude and application of skills. At the same time it is a highly rewarding and stimulating career, with many opportunities to specialise.
There is Government demand to reconfigure the provision of out of hospital care to make it more efficient and effectual; the role of the Paramedic is therefore rapidly evolving into a Paramedic Practitioner offering a more holistic delivery of services. The benefits of this new course will be the ability to encompass these changes.
This is a three-year course, in which (on successful completion) you will be eligible to apply for registration as a Paramedic with the Health Professions Council
(HPC) at the end of year 2. You may then enter year three of the course (if you wish to do so) as a registered Paramedic to further develop learning proficiencies and competencies required for a practitioner role. In addition to this course, there are other Paramedic/emergency care courses and pathways available.
