British Paramedic Association

The British Paramedic Association (College of Paramedics) exists to take forward the standards of education and practice for all those involved in providing professional health care. It recognizes however, that the foundation for good, safe care is based around those people who are faced with everyday accidents and emergencies whilst at home or at work, and the quality of their training and subsequent actions. The British Paramedic Association thus supports this resource as being an essential text for anyone undertaking first aid training, allowing them to give safe and effective care.
