These will be awarded to:

serving members of the Armed Forces that have completed five full calendar years of service on 6 February 2022.
Frontline emergency services personnel that have been in paid service, retained or in a voluntary capacity, dealing with emergencies as part of their conditions of service, and have completed five full calendar years of service on 6 February 2022.
Prison services personnel who are publicly employed and are regularly exposed to difficult and sometimes emergency situations that have completed five full calendar years of service on 6 February 2022.
Members of the Royal Household with one year of qualifying service.
Living individual recipients of the George Cross.
Living individual recipients of the Victoria Cross. 

The medals are applied for by the employing organisations. However, being a registered Paramedic does NOT meet the criteria on its own, as it is NOT the underlying clinical/professional qualification that makes you eligible, but the organisation whom you work for. If you are NOT working for one of the ambulance services, you are probably NOT eligible.  The criteria for the Platinum Jubilee medal are laid down by the Department for Culture Media and Sport on behalf of the Government following ratification by HM The Queen.
