Dear Freedom of Information,

It is the DipHE Course, I thought I made I clear when I said it is the course run by UEA for the East of England Ambulance service for the recruited Student Ambulance Paramedics employed by the trust. The Course is being funded by Health Education England. This course was put together by the UEA to fit the EEAST staff and to satisfy HCPC requirements. I do hope this is clear enough.

Yours sincerely,

William Clinton
