How the games began

The Paramedic Games games began when the then 2nd-year Student Paramedic, Stu, and Jen, Senior Lecturer in Paramedic Science got together to discuss how the Paramedic program at LJMU can be improved to include more engaging and exciting activities. A discussion was had around the Jen's first-hand experience at an international competition whilst working for LAS. Without the opportunity for students to partake within the UK, a team was assembled to put plans in place. The Paramedic Games concept was born…


Building the games 

Throughout the academic year, the Paramedic Games working group slowly began to devise and plan the games. If it was going to work, we needed to take a professional approach from the outset. Our team work tirelessly, to construct and promote the concept, alongside any university work we had to complete. We design the scenarios in partnership with expert judges, and book out all the equipment and facilities we needed. Liverpool John Moores have supported the concept from the start and provide us with a budget to put the games together. Finally, our service user organisations, Changes Plus, and Focus on Involvement, play the part of patients and bystanders with lived experience. 

With the support of the Paramedic Faculty, Clinical Technician Team and other Paramedics who volunteer their time to be involved, the games are able to run for students.
