APA (NSW) Member Update
Paramedicine Council Membership Applications Open
Thursday 10 May 2018
As many of you know professional registration of paramedics will likely occur by the end of 2018. As part of this process, the Paramedicine Council of NSW will be established to manage complaints about registered paramedics and students.
The Council’s main responsibility is to protect the public by regulating the profession. The Council does this by working in partnership with the Health Care Complaints Commission to manage complaints about the health, performance and conduct of registered practitioners in NSW.
The Health Professional Councils Authority is now taking applications for membership on the NSW Paramedicine Council. Members of the Council will:
- Actively contribute to the effective governance and oversight of the Council and its role in the regulation of registered health professionals in NSW;
- Have oversight for the efficient and responsible expenditure of public funds in accordance with relevant legislation and government policy and guidelines; and
- Are accountable for their performance.

Applications close Friday 1 June 2018.
