Part Time
East Midlands Ambulance NHS Trust (EMAS) are delighted to advertise and host a 12 month secondment to NHS England for a Paramedic Improvement Fellowship.

The Paramedic Improvement Fellow will aim to ensure that the health and care systems across the Midlands will have enough paramedics with the right skills, values and behaviours to deliver care that meets local population needs and be aligned to the ambitions set out in the Long-term Workforce Plan (LTWP). This fellowship will facilitate and build relationships across the two ambulance trusts working across the Midlands, together with health and social care providers (acute, community, primary care and local authority) and education providers. Fostering positive relationships across Integrated Care Systems and organisational boundaries will allow for sharing of best practice and learning from experience. Educators will be enabled to provide high quality, consistent learning and development opportunities to deliver a high quality pre and post registration workforce, that has the right skills to deliver safe and effective care to our local population.

The post holder will assist in the development of strategic frameworks to support service improvement, practice and workforce development based on sound research evidence. Through the development and implementation of evidence to support clinical practice the post-holder will assist NHS England and a range of stakeholders in delivering safe and effective patient centred care.
