After some rigorous consultation between United Voice and the QAS, last year’s group of Paramedic graduates who were employed to train as EMDs now have their transition to GPIP secured.
Thanks to the work of their union, the transition of the group into the GPIP intake at Whyte Island will start in June and should be finalised by February 2019.
The EMD trained graduates are part of a QAS alternative employment pathway into paramedicine.
Over the next few months whilst waiting for their placement to Whyte Island,
United Voice has negotiated for these EMDs to be regularly rostered to participate on-road as clinical observers with qualified paramedics.
Congratulations to these members and we wish them luck into the next phase of their chosen profession.
