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.

The University of West London is expanding the academic delivery team for their innovative Pre-registration MSc Paramedic Science course (in readiness for the second cohort to commence in January 2021). 


Two opportunities have been created for LAS Paramedics to join the Brentford based Paramedic team within the College of Nursing, Midwifery and Healthcare, part-time on secondment for 1 year. Either as 0.5 WTE working mainly Monday-Wednesday, or 0.4 WTE working mainly Monday and Wednesday/Thursday. Both posts have some flexibility around key dates and involve some remote working and on-line delivery.

As a Lecturer and key member of the Academic team you will:

  • Support recruitment activity (i.e. open days, selection events).
  • Undertake module leadership and delivery of course content including facilitating simulated learning.
  • Act as a Personal Tutor, supporting the pastoral needs of students.
  • Support students and Practice Educators/mentors in practice placements.
  • Work effectively as part of the paramedic science delivery team.
  • Contribute Paramedic expertise to other disciplines

You will band 6 qualified paramedic (with current HCPC registration) and experience of teaching, learning and assessment, together with the use of innovative and evidence-based approaches. You will possess good IT, interpersonal and communication skills and preferably hold or be working towards a Masters degree in a healthcare subject. A qualification in adult teaching is desirable but not essential as the University will support your development (with a proportion of self-study).


Your application must demonstrate the relevant knowledge, skills, experience and traits you possess to deliver and enhance the course.

The interview process will comprise a 5 minute presentation on the differences between level 6 and level 7 education in the context of Paramedic Science, and a 20 minute interview.


Support from your line manager must be confirmed prior to application. Please ensure this is stated in your application. 

Closing date for applications is Tuesday 3rd November, Secondment to commence from late October 2020. Interview on 11th November.
