Cohort 7 & 8 of the South Yorkshire Paramedic Rotational Scheme
The South Yorkshire Workforce & Training Hub are looking for expressions of interest for cohort 7 & 8 of the Paramedic Rotational Scheme in collaboration with Yorkshire Ambulance Service across South Yorkshire PCNs to start Spring 2024.
The scheme was developed in response to the ARRS funding for the paramedic role to increase GP capacity and promote a sustainable paramedic primary care workforce, without destabilising the ambulance service.
This model gives paramedics skills to manage patients in primary care, including acute care skills, long-term condition management and other skills tailored to support the GP workload. We developed a 12-week preceptorship programme, which is delivered and then followed by a 6-week rotational working pattern. Supervision is in place throughout to support practices embedding the paramedic role.
