Update – Health Services Amendment (Paramedics) Act 2015

As an update to the previous item, we can report that the NSW Parliament has now passed this Act, which will protect the title of Paramedic in NSW.

AECP has been invited to a consultation meeting to discuss the regulations that will operate under the new Act.

The Act will commence following development of the regulations which will provide the details of the qualifications, training or experience needed for a person to call themselves a ‘paramedic’.
