Dear East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust,

I would like to enquire about enhanced skill paramedics in the EEAST. Can you provide me with a copy of either the Matched Job Report (with panel notes) or Evaluated Job Summary Report as appropriate - based on the Agenda for Change Job Evaluation System - for each role over and above the standard paramedic role. I am only looking for clinically enhanced roles (Specialist Paramedic, Advanced Paramedic, Paramedic Practitioner, Emergency Care Practitioner, Community Paramedic and similar) and not enhanced managerial or operational roles (such as Team Leaders or HART).

Yours faithfully,

Craig Brackenridge
