Journal of Paramedic Practice, Vol. 9, Iss. 9, 14 Sep 2017, pp 378 - 386

This 'day-in-the-life' article is the author's first-person account of his experiences
as a paramedic working in an inner-city GP practice, while training to be an
advanced clinical practitioner. The author aims to illustrate the range and
complexity of the role of paramedics based in primary care, and how this role
is developing beyond the traditional scope of paramedic practice. The article
presents actual patient encounters, which reflect a typical working day in
primary care. Through this approach, the author hopes to demonstrate how
paramedics can complement and extend the skills of an established primary care
team. Furthermore, studying advanced clinical practice at postgraduate level
provides new and extended clinical skills and knowledge, allowing paramedics
to work with greater autonomy.
