Every case or call is different, and as well as caring for your patient you will also need to be able to look after your patient’s friends and family and communicate with a range of other health care professionals and the emergency services.

Paramedics must have the skills to assess, diagnose, prescribe, treat, and refer patients to the most appropriate care pathway. You will need to be able to work with patients across the lifespan, from birth to older adults, and think and act quickly under pressure.
