Authored by Government of Jersey and published on 13 June 2019.
Prepared internally, no external costs.
I am requesting information on the following questions related to the Emergency Care Practitioners / Paramedics (ECP) or similar roles (eg
Advanced Paramedic Practitioners) employed by your Ambulance Trust.
Has there been any change in number of Emergency Care Practitioners or similar roles deployed in your workforce in the last 10 years?
Have you received any funding to increase the employment rate of ECPs or similar roles in the past 10 years?
Is there documentation justifying any changes to the funding of the ECP or similar roles?
Can you email the latest documentation (eg guidelines, protocols or specification documents) explaining how ECPs or similar roles are deployed in your service eg type of service ECPs are working in, and so on?
Do you have any information about the impact of ECPs (or similar roles) in reducing non-conveyance rates, patient's transfers to the emergency department and hospital admissions?
At this time, the States of Jersey Ambulance Service do not have ECP’s or similar roles in place. This matter is currently under consideration.
Consequently, we do not hold the information that you request.
