Student Case Study

Hannah Beaumont

Hannah decided from very early on in her time at College that she wanted to be a Paramedic and applied to various universities as competition for the courses was very high. She has been working for the North West Ambulance Service (East Manchester Division) since November 2011, and recently passed her advanced driving test meaning she is qualified to work on the Rapid Response Vehicles.

Hannah has been nominated for an award by her division in recognition of the way she stayed calm and carried out her duties as the first paramedic on the scene at a major incident in Shaw.
