University of the West of Scotland (UWS) has been awarded a five-year contract from NHS Education for Scotland (NES) to deliver BSc Paramedic Science at our new Lanarkshire Campus starting in September 2020.

This new degree, run in partnership with the Scottish Ambulance Service, will enhance patient care and boost training opportunities for budding Paramedics and reflects the growing emphasis placed on the profession to support people with long-term and chronic conditions, mental health and minor illness.

Students will develop the confidence and compassion to deliver high quality emergency care in a range of settings. Theory and clinical simulation skills learnt at our state-of-the-art campus will be applied and integrated in practical settings. Practice based opportunities will be both within the Scottish Ambulance Service and in a range of associated health and social care settings across Ayrshire and Arran, Dumfries and Galloway and Lanarkshire.

Our students will benefit from studying at our new Lanarkshire Campus which is at the forefront of modern learning environments and gives students access to some of the very best facilities in the country."

"Paramedics are playing an increasingly important role in healthcare delivery and we are looking forward to educating the next generation of the profession to meet this demand alongside our partners at the Scottish Ambulance Service."
