Emergency medical technician

As an emergency medical technician, you may operate as a single responder to an incident or support a paramedic on a double-crewed ambulance. You’ll have many of the same skills as paramedics, such as being able to assess, triage and provide lifesaving treatment. You will work closely with colleagues in the ambulance service (including paramedics, emergency call handlers and medical dispatchers, emergency care assistants), emergency medicine doctors, nurses and the wider NHS. You will also work with the other emergency services and urgent care team. You will have direct contact with service users or others, providing high quality and compassionate care.
