Paramedics

Lucy Shemmings (f)

I have been a registered Paramedic since 2015, prior to this I worked as an EMT for 5 years on a frontline Ambulance.  I loved the emergency side, but wanted a new challenge and so joined Two Rivers in 2016 where I am one of two Practice Paramedics.  I am currently working towards a BSc in Emergency Practitioner Care at Wolverhampton University, which is enabling me to develop my Primary Care skills further.

I joined the East of England Ambulance Service in 2003 working initially as an Emergency Medical Technician for 3 years. In 2006 completed the IHCD Paramedic course and became a registered Paramedic. In 2007 I achieved the certificate of higher education in Emergency Medical Care. In my final years I became a qualified level 6 Mentor working with university students during their Ambulance placements. My passion to teach led me to work on the Training Ambulance based out of Ipswich.  I enjoyed nearly 15 years with the Ambulance Service working on both Ambulances and Rapid Response Cars. Although I enjoyed emergency medicine I wanted to get to know my patients and enhance my general knowledge of medicine, hence the reason for moving into Primary Care.

I joined Kent Ambulance Service in 2000. I was based in Canterbury working on frontline ambulances as an Emergency Medical Technician before qualifying as a registered Paramedic in 2003. I returned to my home county of Suffolk in 2005 joining East of England Ambulance Service and was based in Ipswich and Felixstowe for the next fifteen years. As a Senior Paramedic, I was responsible for mentoring many new staff including university students and providing professional update training.

I left the Ambulance Service in 2020 to pursue the opportunity to develop my knowledge and skills in a new direction working in Primary Care, supporting the GPs and other professionals at Two Rivers Medical Centre.
