London Ambulance Service covers an area of 620 sq. miles, serves one of the world’s most dynamic and diverse cities and is the busiest ambulance service in the UK. We handle over 1.9 million emergency calls from across the capital and attend more than 1.2 million incidents every single year as well as delivering a 24 hour NHS 111 Integrated Urgent Care Service in South East and North East London that we estimate will respond to around 1.4million urgent care calls by the end of the year.


We employ over 8,000 people who work or volunteer across London to respond to the health needs of over eight million people who live, work and travel in the capital. We work closely with our NHS partners and are commissioned by 32 clinical commissioning groups spread across 5 sustainability and transformation partnerships (STPs) and NHS England for our specialist services. We work alongside London’s hospital, mental health and specialist trusts, as well as the five STPs across Greater London.


In addition we work in partnership with the other emergency services, London’s Air Ambulance and London’s Resilience Forums to make sure we are ready and prepared to respond to major incidents and ensure we keep Londoners safe. As the only pan-London NHS provider we have a unique opportunity to play a leading role in integrating access to emergency and urgent care right across London.


By 2023 we will improve outcomes and experiences for all our patients by providing the right care to patients at the right time, and in the most cost effective way. This will mean up to 122,000 fewer patients being taken to emergency departments when their needs could be better met in a different way, and we will deliver significant efficiencies in avoided costs to the urgent and emergency care sector.

Senior Sector Clinical Lead – Waterloo HQ

Are you looking for a fresh clinical leadership challenge? Are you looking to take the next step in your paramedic clinical career? If you are an experienced clinician with proven leadership ability looking to take your next step read on because we are looking to recruit two Senior Sector Clinical Leads.

The London Ambulance Service NHS Trust (LAS) is a unique and complex emergency service network serving a diverse population and responding to 1.8 million emergency calls per year.  Demands on urgent and emergency care providers across the capital are increasing, and the Trust is developing services for patients for whom care can be provided closer to home. 

This is an exciting opportunity for two clinical leaders who aspire to provide high-quality clinical delivery within the South East operational sector and also within our Resilience and Specialist assets department. Working closely with the senior operational leadership team you will support the development of care pathways, provide clinical supervision to a range of staff, oversee clinical delivery across the key areas of delivery as well as provide a senior first point of contact for clinical issues within the sector/department. You will also lead all clinically related investigations supporting the delivery of the highest level of clinical care across your sector.

If successful you will be the key link between the medical directorate and your sector/department. Working to a Consultant Paramedic you will have in addition a specialist area of interest which you will lead on across the organisation.

If you think this is the next step in your career and you have a Paramedic Science or equivalent clinical/science degree along with significant experience at a team leader, in advanced practice or managerial level in clinical leadership we want to hear from you.
