What’s the best thing about the job?

The role of paramedics is a very diverse, there is something for everyone. Working for an NHS ambulance service and responding to 999 calls or venturing into critical care with an air ambulance role. Perhaps managing your own caseload by working for a GP practice, working in a walk-in centre or emergency department. There are opportunities in leadership and management, research and development, and education and many other organisations not specifically linked to healthcare too. Being a paramedic means being a part of a valued, exciting and evolving profession and the College of Paramedics is committed to seeing paramedics achieve their full potential for the benefit of patients across the UK.
