Paramedic Science - University of Brighton

As a paramedic you will often be the first healthcare professional at the scene of incidents requiring pre-hospital care. Working in conditions which can be challenging and rapidly changing, you will assess a patient’s condition and make potentially lifesaving decisions about treatment and hospital transfer. Working as a paramedic offers many employment experiences in the UK and further afield. There are opportunities for you to undertake an international placement, and explore practice in a different environment and culture. Accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council and endorsed by the College of Paramedics, this course gives you everything you need to become a paramedic. Graduates of this course are entitled to administer medication and perform certain surgical techniques. To ensure you can confidently apply theory to practice, you’ll spend 50% of your year on placement with the South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust and in other healthcare settings. You will also practise in our state of the art clinical skills and simulation suite and community flat. The recognition that patients come first in everything the NHS does, and the values of the NHS constitution – respect, dignity, compassion and working together for patients – are embedded in our curriculum.
