Paramedics provide specialist care and treatment to patients who are either acutely ill or injured. To work in the UK as a paramedic you will need to have undertaken a course approved by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), the regulatory body for paramedics.
The College of Paramedics is the recognised professional body for paramedics and the ambulance profession in the UK. The College represents its members in all matters affecting their clinical practice and supports them to achieve the highest standards of patient care. The College provides support to the profession by providing advice to members and to those who are considering joining the ambulance professions.
