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 (Urgent Care)

The London Ambulance Service is building a world-class ambulance service for a world-class city, integrating access to urgent and emergency care on scene, on phone and online. We are now looking to expand our successful Advanced Paramedic Practitioner Urgent Care (APP-UC) programme further, with additional posts established to support further expansion across London.

 

Our programme currently operates from five ambulance stations located in Barnehurst, Brent, Croydon, Friern Barnet and Ilford, and we are looking for staff across each sector and in particular for vacancies at Barnehurst, Friern Barnet and Ilford.

This is an exciting opportunity for clinicians who wish to develop as advanced paramedics and aspire to provide advanced care to patients presenting with undifferentiated urgent care needs.


Successful applicants will work on a rotational basis with rotations through general practice, urgent care centres as well as the core clinical ambulance service as a solo responder.
Staff will also work in the Emergency Operations Centre, providing clinical advice and dispatching other members of the APP-UC programme.


Successful applicants will undergo a funded MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice with one of our partner Universities to support an expanded scope of practice, and develop within a nationally supported education framework leading to credentialing as an advanced practitioner.


Applicants should be registered paramedics with a relevant clinical BSc (Hons) and the equivalent of five years post-registration experience by October 2020.
Candidates who do not entirely fulfil these criteria, but have equivalent education and/or experience, are encouraged to make contact to discuss their application in advance


Candidates who have been shortlisted will be invited to attend an assessment and interview.
