QI case study – Paramedics in a GP setting

Recruiting a paramedic
Be clear about the role you want a paramedic to do.
Look for experience of working in primary care (for example, working in GP out-of-hours services).
Ensure they have relevant qualifications.
Look for communication and listening skills.
Make sure your medical indemnity provider knows that you are employing a paramedic. Medical indemnity cover can be arranged in the same way as for other primary care clinicians such as nurse practitioners.
