Congratulations to the Chair of the College of Paramedics Student Council, Ben Vickars, as he goes on the HCPC register.
Ben, who successfully studied a BSc in Paramedic Science at St George’s, University of London, agreed that while his course was tough, it was made much more difficult because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
He said: “The last 18 months have not been easy, that’s for sure, but I’m so grateful for all the support that we’ve received, and for the work that everyone has put in to allow the course to continue. It’s a great feeling to finally be registered with the HCPC.”
Ben will now be joining London Ambulance Service, working in South London, where he hopes to continue his interest in emergency preparedness and resilience.
As the Chair of the Student Council, Ben works with regional representatives to respond to student enquiries and concerns, provides a student voice to various organisations and College teams, and additionally engages team members in developing the pre-registration student paramedic pathway.
