Many people think the job of the ambulance service is to collect patients and take them to hospital, but we do much more!
We have a dedicated clinical assessment service where we recruit a number of clinical professionals which includes Paramedics, Registered Nurses, GP’s, Pharmacists, and Dentists which allows us to provide patients with the most suitable assessment, medication advice and the appropriate pathways of care from the very beginning of the patient journey.
Ultimately patients are the heart of everything that we do to support our mission of "safe, effective and responsive care for all".
At NEAS we value and respect the diversity employees bring to our workplace. We recruit a workforce that reflects the community we serve.
