Nathan is a registered paramedic and his background since 2007 has been working in various roles in the ambulance service, particularly in ‘critical care’. Since 2017 he has worked at ARU, initially as a Clinical Skills Tutor and now a lecturer, which has ignited his interest in research regarding prehospital emergency care.

Within the ambulance service, Nathan worked initially as an ambulance and ‘fast response car’ paramedic, then specialized as a HART (Hazardous Area Response Team) paramedic and a secondment as a HEMS (Helicopter Emergency Medical Service) paramedic.

From the beginning of his career as a paramedic he has had an interest in teaching student paramedics and therefore he moved onto being a Clinical Skills Tutor. This opened his eyes to research and hence was one incentive to progress to lecturer. Research in pre-hospital emergency care is surprisingly limited and he has a keen interest in expanding knowledge here, particularly the expectations of a paramedic in the prehospital emergency care environment in the UK.
