Dear Ms Chadwick 
 
Freedom of Information Act 2000 – Information Request 
 
Thank you for your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act which was received 
on 13 March 2019.  I can confirm that we hold the information you have requested.  You asked the 
following questions, reproduced in bold below: 
 
 

I would like to know what percentage of newly qualified paramedics (NQP's) leave the 
trust within the two year preceptorship period. 

 
 
7 or 4.5% 
 
 
If  you  are  not  satisfied  with  the  information  we  have  provided,  you  can  request  an  internal  review 
which  will  be  carried  out  by  Mr  Paul  Aitken-Fell,  who  is  the  Trust’s  Consultant  Paramedic  and  is 
someone not involved with your original request.   
 
If you wish to follow this route, please contact xxxxxx.xxxxxxxx@xxxx.xxx.xx who will commence the 
process on your behalf. 
 
If you remain unhappy with the outcome of the review, you can ultimately complain to: 
 
The Information Commissioner’s Office 
Wycliffe House 
Water Lane 
Wilmslow

Chairman: Peter Strachan   Chief Executive: Yvonne Ormston

licensed to provide services, by the Care Quality Commission (Provider ID: RX601). 



Yours sincerely
