Whether you are here to find out about standing for a role on the Paramedic Council or looking for guidance on how to vote you will find it here. 

The Paramedic Council contains 14 member representatives positions, representing 12 geographical areas (nations/regions) as well as military and overseas and student members. The geographical regions are well recognised nationally and are mirrored in the College of Paramedics Student Council structure. 

The next Paramedic Council elections will take place in late spring 2022 with an opportunity to stand for the Eastern Member Representative position.

Information will be posted here nearer the time.

Your region is predominantly related to the geographical location you live or work in and are based on the Nomenclature of Territorial Units for Statistics (NUTS) used by the National Office of Statistics and others.

The nations of Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales are of course clear.

Those members in the military and members registered in the UK but practicing outside of the UK borders, are within the Military and Overseas sector. 

Members should log in to the College website and go to their Member Profile, where they can ensure they are allocated the most appropriate region/sector. This will then be the one you can stand within, be represented within and be active within as a member.

Should you choose to stand for member representative and be successful, your role on the Paramedic Council will be the representative voice of your colleagues in that nation/region/sector. 


If you are an associate member, your member representative sits on the Paramedic Council for you as well as for full members. Member groups and networks will be developed in each region/sector which will be open to all members and will need the involvement of members of all categories. Please watch out for opportunities to get involved.


If you are a student paramedic, your member representative sits on the Paramedic Council for you as well as for full members and associate member. However, the Student Council is also there as a platform for the student member. Read more about our Student Council.
