The inaugural UK student paramedic conference

Lecturer's perspectivePostscriptAs a Professor in the Division of Paramedic Science at the University of Hertfordshire, it was particularly exciting to attend a national event that individuals from our own Student Paramedic Society initiated—from conception of the idea through to final delivery. The programme was packed with relevant sessions and activities, and the nature and quality of the presentations were superb. The actual organisation of the event itself and the attention to detail culminated in a delegate experience that, in my opinion, equalled (and in some cases surpassed) other professionally organised conferences that I have attended over the years. Our thanks and congratulations should be offered to everyone involved, both front of house and back stage.The large number of students attending from other universities and ambulance trusts just serves to illustrate the appetite for this type of event, highlighting future possibilities for the paramedic student body around the country. The delegates engaged in critical questioning on topical issues surrounding clinical practice and the future of the paramedic profession. If the commitment apparent at this conference, by delegates, organisers and presenters alike, is any gauge for future developments in out-of-hospital unscheduled and urgent care and the paramedic profession in general, then things look extremely promising.
