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 6,000 staff, including volunteers, 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.

Advanced Paramedic Practitioner- Critical Care

If you’re an experienced paramedic looking to develop your career in one of the busiest ambulance services in the world, read on because we are recruiting Advanced Paramedic Practitioners in Critical Care.

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. This is an exciting opportunity for clinicians who aspire to provide advanced clinical management and co-ordination of complex and challenging care to critical care patients in clinically demanding situations and environments.

If you’re successful, you will quickly gain experience of assessing and managing undifferentiated patients across a number of clinical and operational areas. You will also undertake shifts in the Emergency Operations Centre (EOC).
Once in post as a London Ambulance Service Advanced Paramedic Practitioner (Critical Care) you will participate in clinical practice development and evaluation, as well as provide support and mentorship/leadership to clinical staff at a variety of levels. You will also be required to complete a relevant post-graduate qualification.

If you think this is the next step in your career and you have significant experience of operational clinical practice (this would normally be broadly equivalent to approximately five years post-registration) we want to hear from you.


Assessments: 1st & 2nd August 2020.

Interviews: 12th August 2020.
