Emergency Care Practitioners are in increasing demand. Check out our latest ECP opportunities below
Emergency care practitioners (ECP) are highly sought after as NHS resources are stretched, prompting more paramedics with advanced training to assess and administer medical treatment. By responding to emergency calls, ECPs can reduce admissions and improve patient outcomes.
What is an emergency care practitioner?
ECPs are generally paramedics who have received additional training at diploma, degree or postgraduate level. They are able to provide physical assessments, treating minor illnesses and injuries, working across various departments including the elderly, paediatrics, mental health or pharmacology. With the ability to treat patients at home or provide referrals for escalation of care, ECPs carry additional equipment and drugs to treat patients on the scene.
