Paramedics (Primary and Urgent Care) Core Capabilities Framework

Health Education England has commissioned the development of a Paramedics (Primary and Urgent Care) Core Capabilities Framework. Development of the framework is steered by a project management group comprising stakeholder organisations including Health Education England, NHS England, College of Paramedics and Skills for Health. The framework is due for completion by the end of October 2018.

The framework will provide a definition of what a paramedic in a primary or urgent care setting can do. It will provide a minimum standard for safe and effective practice within the professionals’ scope of practice e.g.

  • for governance – to provide a benchmark for service managers and commissioners and,
  • for education and training – to indicate minimum learning outcomes from education and training, linking with the existing College of Paramedics postgraduate curriculum.
