Background

Within the ambulance service, Nathan worked initially as an ambulance and fast response car paramedic, moving on to HART (Hazardous Area Response Team) paramedic and also a secondment as a HEMS (Helicopter Emergency Medical Service) paramedic.

From the beginning of his career as a paramedic, Nathan has had an interest in teaching student paramedics, and this prompted him to become a Clinical Skills Tutor. This opened his eyes to research, which particularly incentivised him to progress to his current post as Lecturer.

Research in pre-hospital emergency care is surprisingly limited and Nathan has a keen interest in expanding knowledge here, particularly in critical care, which includes major trauma and out of hospital cardiac arrest.

Research interests

Pre-hospital emergency care. There is relatively limited research in this area and Nathan is keen to expand research in this area, particularly the assessment and management of patients in critical need.
