Please note this is not a LET-B recognised training post, and you will not receive a National Training Number or a CCT in EM or PHEM.
You will be trained by East Anglian Air Ambulance as a member of a specialist pre-hospital emergency medical team, who provide the full range of pre-hospital medical interventions. This role will partner a critical care paramedic and may lead the clinical team, responding to a wide range of critically ill patients across the East of England.
The Charity is available between 07:00-19:00 in Norwich and 07:00-01:30 in Cambridge, and activated via the Critical Care Desk of the East of England Ambulance NHS Trust, deploying to the incident using the most appropriate means available (rapid response car or air ambulance). Often working alongside the other emergency services, the team may be involved with delivering the full spectrum of pre-hospital critical care at the scene, as well as in transit to hospital. This commonly involves managing seriously ill or injured patients who may be entrapped, or require specialist interventions prior to transport. Secondary patient transfers between hospitals, comprises a small proportion of tasking’s. In practice, the team is deployed between one and five times per day.
You will also be expected to become involved in aspects of governance and non-clinical work such as audit and case review. There are opportunities for research projects to be undertaken.
There are also opportunities to develop teaching and presenting skills, and regular teaching will be provided.
The post will be supported by an initial modular training package consisting of a mixture of individually themed days, and a residential education and training course. This is comprised of a combination of simulator based and classroom teaching sessions, prior to directly supervised clinical practice, leading to a summative end-of training assessment, and subsequent ‘sign-off’ to work within the team.
