London Ambulance Service NHS Trust is the busiest emergency ambulance service in the UK with over 4,500 staff who works across a wide range of roles. Our service operates over an area of approximately 620 square miles across London based in 70 ambulance stations. 


We serve more than eight million people who live and work in the London area. Our main role is to respond to emergency 999 calls, getting medical help to patients who have serious or life-threatening injuries or illnesses as quickly as possible.


However, many of our patients have less serious illnesses or injuries, and do not need to be sent an ambulance on blue lights and sirens. Often these patients will receive more appropriate care somewhere other than at hospital and so we provide a range of care to them, recognising that many have complex problems or long-term medical conditions. We also provide clinical assessments over the phone to more callers with less serious illnesses and injuries. 


As an integral part of the NHS in London, we work closely with hospitals and other healthcare professionals, as well as with other emergency services. We are also central to planning for, and responding to, large-scale events or major incidents in the capital. 


In everything we do, we are Respectful, Professional, Innovative and Collaborative. 


Respectful - Caring for our Patients and each other with compassion and empathy. Championing quality and diversity. Acting fairly.


Professional - Acting with honesty and integrity. Aspiring to clinical, technical and managerial excellence. Leading by example. Being accountable and outcomes orientated.


Innovative - Thinking creatively. Driving value and sustainable change. Harnessing technology and new ways of working. Taking courageous decisions.


Collaborative: Listening and learning from each other. Working with partners. Being open and transparent. Building trust.


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 clinical leadership ability looking to take your next step read on because we are looking to recruit Sector Senior 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.


In addition we are the current provider for NHS 111 in South East London and NHS 111 / Integrated Urgent Care in North East London.   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.


The Trust is developing the way it delivers both clinical leadership and care across the capital and we have a number of exciting opportunities across London.


This is an opportunity for clinical leaders who aspire to provide outstanding clinical delivery within one of the five geographical sectors across the Trust.


Working closely with the sector operational leadership team you will clinically 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, in conjunction with the Sector Quality Governance Assurance Manager.


You will support clinically related investigations ensuring the delivery of the highest level of clinical care across your sector.


If successful you will be the key link between the medical director and your sector. 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 and varied experience as a clinical leader, as an advanced clinical practitioner or managerial level in clinical leadership we want to hear from you. You will need to demonstrate you are currently practising at high clinical skill level.
