Be the first on the scene to assess, treat and refer patients in an emergency. Every day is different in this exciting and challenging role. Our Paramedic Science course will equip you with the knowledge and skills to become an autonomous, effective and safe paramedic. Clinical education is central to paramedic science and around 50% of your time will be in both ambulance and non-ambulance practice settings to help you develop in your profession and apply theory to current practice. We have strong working links with South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SECAmb), and you'll be spending most of your placement time working with professionals in this Trust. You'll also undertake some of your placement time working in the community, GP Practices and secondary care, so you are exposed to the whole patient journey. Once successfully completed, you will be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) as a paramedic. Professional accreditation The course is currently approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and is subject to ongoing monitoring. On completion of the course and in preparation for registration, the Course Director must be satisfied that you meet the relevant statutory regulatory body fitness to practise criteria. You will be required to sign an annual declaration of ongoing fitness to practise at regular intervals during the course. To be eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council you must demonstrate good health and good character throughout your studies and on completion. Applications for professional registration will be subject to satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) checks and Occupational Health clearance.
