The role of the paramedic is to provide excellent, quality pre-hospital care to patients across the region.
To rise to the challenge you’ll need to be a qualified paramedic registered with the HCPC or a current paramedic student due to qualify this year.
As a frontline clinician, you will be expected to apply your clinical skills in a variety of environments with patients from all backgrounds and walks of life. You will need to be highly motivated with the ability to work well under pressure and deal with stressful and highly emotive situations, giving the best and most appropriate care to all of your patients.
You will be supported in clinical decision-making from senior, advanced and consultant paramedics around the clock. No decision is made without the knowledge that support is only a radio call away.
To rise to the challenge you’ll need to be a qualified paramedic registered with the HCPC or a current paramedic student due to qualify this year. You’ll also need to have completed an IHCD Paramedic Training Programme or a paramedic qualification through a university higher education institute.
We’re looking for individuals that can demonstrate drive, hard work and determination. In return we’ll support you to succeed in your career with progression opportunities that are second to none.
Career pathways to becoming a paramedic include internal progression from the role of Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) or applying to university to study the Paramedic Degree programme as a direct entry student at a university higher education institute.
NWAS works in partnership with four university higher education institutes in the North West with regards to paramedic student placements during their degree programmes:
Cumbria University; Edge Hill University; Liverpool John Moores University; University of Bolton and University of Central Lancashire (UCLAN).
