Looking at some of the non- technical lessons learnt, as well as some of the fantastic ways some of the organisations and individuals have adapted to the unprecedented circumstances.
Dr John Martin FCPara, Chair of Board presents: The College of Paramedic’s AGM
This is your opportunity to contribute towards developing your professional body. You will hear from John, who will provide a roundup of activities from 2019 and the 2020 election results and our Treasurer who will present an update on the financial accounts for 2019. There will also be a reminder to cast your vote on two proposed changes, if you have not done so already. Being involved in your professional body in this way and participation in professional activities all contributes towards your CPD.
