Fitness to Practice
Being fit to practise requires a EMT at any grade to have the skills, knowledge, good health and good character to do their job safely and effectively, this includes those registered with other agencys.
All level 2 and 3 registrants of the UKREMT must be "Fit to Practice"
When we say that a registrant is ‘fit to practise’ we mean that they have the skills, knowledge and character to practise their profession safely and effectively.
However, fitness to practise is not just about professional performance. It also includes acts by a registrant which may affect public protection or confidence in the profession. This may include matters not directly related to professional practice.
We will investigate if an allegation is made that a registered EMT does not meet our standards for skills, education and behaviour. If necessary, we will act by removing them from the register permanently or for a set period of time.

Concerns about a Full Registrant or a Fellow Registrant.
If you have concerns about a registered EMT and believe they are not fit to practise, please contact us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your concerns as we maybe able to resolve your concerns via our informal procedure before taking it to the FTP Panel.
We investigate various allegations including:
lack of competence
not having the necessary knowledge of English
serious ill health.
It is our role as the UKREMT to make sure the EMTs fitness to practise is meeting our standards, while they remain on the register. It is not the duty of patients or the public to decide whether a registrant is fit to practise. However, they can raise their concerns if they feel the safety of patients or the public are at risk.
We are not responsible for regulating hospitals or other healthcare settings. We also do not regulate Paramedics, Nurses or Doctors as they are regulated by their own registration schemes.

The UKREMT CODE.
The Code presents the professional standards that full registrant and associate registrants of the UKREMT must uphold in order to be registered with us.
Effective from 30th January 2018, this Code reflects the world in which we live and work today, and the changing roles and expectations of those that work in the arena of pre-hosptial care as both EMTs and those just entering the profession as associate registrants.
It is structured around four themes – prioritise people, practise effectively, preserve safety and promote professionalism and trust.
Developed from the NMC code and with some of our Fellows who care about good pre-hospital care, the Code can be used by EMTs as a way of reinforcing their professionalism.
Failure to comply with the Code may bring their fitness to practise into question.
