The new band 6 paramedic profile recognises the additional responsibilities and knowledge paramedics need to carry out their role. Take a look at information to support you as an employer to help your paramedics develop their career, including:
- the new job description for paramedics in pay band 6, which is in line with the requirements of NHS England’s Urgent and Emergency Care Review
- a consolidation of learning programme for Newly Qualified Paramedics (NQPs)
- a fast-track scheme allowing NQPs to apply for early completion of the consolidation programme.
Further information about the agreement and all of the above career development options can be found in Agenda for Change paramedic development.
