Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Health and Care Professions Council,

Could you please provide the following:

The number of non university approved paramedic training qualifications

The number of in employment training up to paramedic registration

It seems the huge shortage of paramedics is solely due to the insistence of attending an un-nhs funded course for 3 years full time which only 18 year olds living with thier parents can practically do. There are currently a huge number of paramedic graduates who leave the profession in the first year as they were not aware what the job was really like, surely this route is ineffective , these graduates would never have got to the position of paramedic in the traditional training method and the service would be full of staff who want to be there as opposed to now with 21 year old kids who have no patient communication skills but can write an essay, the job does not involve essays it involves communicating with patients

Yours faithfully,

Jo rickman
