THE LONDON AMBULANCE PARAMEDIC PROGRAMME
in collaboration with the
PATIENTS' FORUM FOR THE LAS
The London Ambulance Paramedic Programme
The London Ambulance Service’s Paramedic Programme in Fulham is designed to enable clinical staff - Emergency Ambulance Crew (EACs) and Emergency Ambulance Technicians (EATs) - to develop professionally to become Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registered Paramedics. The Programme was launched in January 2016.
The Programme is delivered in modules over a total period of approximately two years.
Students on the Programme will complete four, self-directed ‘ramp modules’ over a six-month period. Following successful completion of these, classroom learning will take place over a further 18 months. Students will be required to attend a total of six, two week blocks of taught input, as well as self-directed study.
Students are required to complete practice placements, working one-to-one with a Practice Educator. In addition, they need to complete up to six weeks of wider healthcare (non-double crewed ambulance) practice placements, e.g. in a hospital's A&E or Maternity Department.
A London Ambulance Service Paramedic Programme Diploma, equivalent to Academic Level 5, will be issued to all successful students, in addition to their registration with the HCPC.
HCPC registered Paramedics can apply for jobs in the LAS or any other ambulance service in the UK.
