The University of Cumbria has extensive experience in delivering high quality paramedic education across the UK.

TV/Film Set Medics

Employer: First Aid Plus Ltd 

£180 per day
Duration: 4 x productions starting in June & August, approximately 3 months duration 
Area: London & surrounding areas


  • HCPC Registered Paramedics with over 2 years NHS Ambulance  experience.
  • Supply your own medical kit

Experience of working on TV/Film sets – not essential.

First Aid Plus Ltd started out in 2000 as a company providing Paramedics to teach First Aid Courses.  We have since branched out into the film industry providing paramedics as UNIT MEDICS for productions throughout the UK and sometimes overseas.

Our Director Karen Bramston qualified as a State Registered Paramedic in 1993 working for the East of England Ambulance service. Karen takes pride having built close client relationships in the TV & Film Industry.

We are looking for enthusiastic and experienced Paramedics/Medics to help cover upcoming productions.

What’s involved in Film/TV event cover
If you like the idea of rubbing shoulders with film stars, having a relatively relaxing day, watching how TV & Films are made and getting paid to do this then read on.  Working as a Medic/Paramedic for First Aid Plus Ltd, on TV & Film sets is very different from attending to 999 emergencies. A TLC approach is needed for a treating cast & crew for minor situations such as splinters, medicating coughs & colds or applying sunscreen, whilst being prepared to treat trauma in the unlikely event of serious injury during stunts and other ‘weird and wonderful’ shots and of course being able to carry out swab testing.

Who are we looking for?
First Aid Plus medics have a cool, calm & collective, positive attitude around the cast and crew & are able to assess a situation and behave in the appropriate manner when it comes to providing medical assistance. Medics must always be immediately on hand & have planned how on various locations they would access resources is a huge positive. 

If you are interested in becoming a Medic in the film industry, please send:

  • A copy of your CV
  • HCPC/IHCD/RCN/GMC Registration No.
  • Insurance Certificate
  • DBS Certificate
  • College of Paramedics membership number
