Paramedics are required to meet all the competencies for their profession. You can read the Paramedic Council’s Standards of Cultural Safety and Clinical Competence here.
If you have reason to believe that a paramedic is practising below the required competencies and may pose a risk of harm to the public, you may be required to notify the Council.
If you are an employer, you must promptly notify the Council if a paramedic resigns or is dismissed for reasons relating to competence.
If you are a health practitioner and you believe that a paramedic may pose a risk of harm to the public by practising below the standard of competence, you can inform the Council with your reasons for concern.
A notification must be made in writing to the Registrar and include the reasons why you believe the paramedic poses a risk of harm to the public. You may access our online form here. If you would like to discuss your concerns further before completing a notification form, please email [email protected].
