Ambulance Clinical Technicians work with paramedics on the frontline of healthcare, looking after those in need and responding to a wide range of situations, from minor wounds and conditions to more serious, life-threatening injuries and illnesses. The course aims to develop students’ knowledge and skills to assess, diagnose, provide basic treatment and assist paramedics in referring patients to the most appropriate care pathway. The theoretical and clinical elements of the course are intended to meet all of the key areas required by the National Education Network for Ambulance Services (NENAS) in order to meet the role specification for Assistant Ambulance Practitioners. The Cert HE Ambulance Clinical Technician Practice has been developed in partnership with East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) and is designed to provide students with the theoretical knowledge, clinical skills, and practical work experience needed to provide high-quality and responsive healthcare whilst working on an emergency ambulance. Ambulance Clinical Technicians help to deliver a broad spectrum of healthcare in a range of situations - from giving lifesaving medical help at the scene of an accident to supporting a patient who is experiencing a mental health crisis.
