Lifetime Achievement Award


Lifetime Achievement Awards are awarded to individuals who have made a long and outstanding contribution to the College of Paramedics, the paramedic profession or to patient care over the whole of their career, rather than or in addition to single contributions. It is, consequently, only rarely bestowed.

John Hinds Scholarship Award

This Scholarship Award is presented in memory of the late Dr John Hinds, a man held in high regard as an inspirational leader by Paramedics/EMTs and indeed anyone with an interest in prehospital care on both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. Dr Hinds selflessly gave a huge amount of his own time to educating and supporting paramedics and ambulance staff on the Island of Ireland and a scholarship for those colleagues is a fitting and practical way to preserve their memory of such a well-respected colleague and medical professional. The Scholarship is aimed at all levels of pre-hospital responder; first responder to advanced paramedic, on the Island of Ireland.

The College is honoured to administer and present this scholarship award on behalf of Dr Hinds’ family, friends and colleagues, and does so in association with Galen and the ATACC Group.
