Place of Work North West Ambulance Service
College Area: North West
I am currently working as a Clinical Practice Educator teaching on the Induction training courses for the North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust. I have worked for the ambulance service for over 28 years and have completed many roles as a trainer, a senior paramedic and on the air ambulance. The challenge that the ambulance service faces at this time is widely understood and the College of Paramedics role is to represent and develop ambulance professionals in all matters affecting their clinical practice, thereby supporting the highest standards of patient care.
I have a passion for education and the role that it plays in developing the profession as well as patient safety. I am also enthused as to the role that the College of Paramedics has played and continues to play in developing the profession alongside ambulance services, educational establishments and regulatory bodies.
Our strategy for the North West region is to increase the membership of the College in the North West. Develop the awareness of the College in the North West with the public, press and other stakeholders, and develop a rolling program of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) sessions across the North West. I am always on the lookout for support with these areas and if you have the passion like me to develop the profession please get in touch to find out what opportunities are available.
