What does a Specialist Paramedic do?
A Specialist Paramedic assesses the patient and establishes the patient’s medical history and decides whether or not it is possible to treat the patient’s condition at home and using the appropriate emergency treatment. That is just the very basics of being a specialist paramedic, of course, every situation will be different, some being a lot harder than others.
From an official job description: To provide high-quality care at a higher level of competence and practice for patients who require clinical services provided by the Trust.
