Ambulance Services: Staff

Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN HL4052, tabled on 15 November 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government what steps they are taking to ensure that staff working in ambulances who are not paramedics have to be (1) registered, or (2) regulated.

Answered on

26 November 2021

The Government is clear that the statutory regulation of healthcare professionals should only be used where the risks to public and patient protection cannot be addressed in other ways, such as through employer oversight or accredited voluntary registration. We have no plans to extend statutory regulation to ambulance staff other than paramedics.
