Student Paramedic placements in General Practice

Thursday, 28 April, 2016

The North West Placement Development Network (NWPDN) works in partnership with colleagues from Healthcare Providers and Universities in the North West; ensuring the provision of high quality multi-professional learning opportunities in practice to meet the education and training requirements for all healthcare learners across the region. The NWPDN has worked with the North West Ambulance Service (NWAS) and Edge Hill University based in Manchester for several years to source high quality placements providing breadth and inter-professional learning.  The students are a mixture of new recruits and secondments from NWAS.This project looked at providing additional capacity for the course and providing them with a ‘rich’ experience that would equip them for future healthcare delivery. One area identified as being a potential learning experience to provide breadth was time within a general practitioner setting.To read more case studies in this series click on the author below (North West Placement Development Network)
