St John Ambulance Services people include ambulance officers and emergency medical dispatchers. Some are paid, many are volunteers, all of them are suitably trained

Ambulance officers

All St John ambulance officers receive on-going clinical training from St John. Our clinical training is constantly being reviewed and aligned to national and international clinical practices.

There are five different uniform patches that are worn on the sleeve. The five patches are:

  • First Responder
  • Emergency Medical Technician
  • Paramedic
  • Intensive Care Paramedic
  • Doctor

Emergency medical dispatchers

While ambulance officers are the most public face of St John, the Clinical Control Centres are an essential component of our service. The centres are staffed by emergency medical dispatchers, who take calls and co-ordinate help.

The numbers tell a story

While some of our people are paid employees, many more are unpaid volunteers who work for St John in their free time. All of them are trained, to ensure we consistently provide a high level of care.
