We don't need to go into the small print of life as a paramedic - you know it already. But if you live the values we expect of our people – care, respect, teamwork, quality, honesty - your career can soar here at EEAST to allow you to make the most of your profession:
We are recruiting enthusiastic, compassionate, and caring HCPC registered paramedics to work within our organisation and to deliver outstanding patient care.
We are looking for professional clinicians to join us and continue delivering outstanding compassionate care. We know how challenging both the ambulance environment is, and being a clinician working remotely can be, but importantly rewarding. We use the national clinical practice guidelines, local guidelines and our clinical app to support your practice along with access to a clinical advice line. Our clinicians are trusted to give the care they assess and consider are appropriate to meet their needs.
We need our staff to be part of improving care to patients through individual practice and through delivering our clinical strategies like our end of life care, or improving cardiac arrest survival. We have a dedicated quality improvement team and a new strategy to help good ideas be explored, developed and implemented. We have a great success in safeguarding our most vulnerable patients, with over 4,000 referrals per month. The Trust is extremely research active and encourages individuals to be involved in research to improve patient care. We have active engagement with our commissioners to explore new ways of working and pathways of care. This includes opening up referral pathways and rotational opportunities for staff in other roles or organisations.

The most important part, above all, is for you to be part of this.
