Paramedic Training and Development

A Primary Care Network (PCN) can recruit a Paramedic under the Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS).

They will receive a Whole Time Equivalent (WTE) paramedic, this will consist of two paramedics who work on rotation between the PCN and Yorkshire Ambulance Service (YAS).

The paramedics will each have a 12 week training module (24 weeks in total) at a Practice/PCN completing their training module.

After the initial 12 week training, the Paramedics will remain employed by YAS while working in the PCN on rotation – each paramedic will work alternate 6 week blocks between the PCN and YAS.
