First Response Emergency Care Placements in UK, Mexico

Paramedic / Emergency Medicine Placements in UK & Mexico

Combined First Response Emergency Care (FREC) Training and Practical Ambulance Experience in Mexico

If you are interested in a career as a private ambulance technician or registered paramedic, a FREC qualification could be your first step in the journey to achieving your dream.

Global Medical Projects has teamed up with leading pre-hospital medical training organisation Meditech Global to give you the opportunity to develop your pre-hospital training qualifications, combined with practical experience with a front line ambulance service in Mexico.

The Qualsafe Awards FREC pre-hospital training syllabus is nationally accredited by Ofqual with Royal College Of Surgeons Faculty Of Pre-Hospital Care endorsement and enables learners to attain knowledge along with practical clinical competencies in emergency care from level 3, to level 4, then progress with administration of life saving medications before achieving diploma level 5. FREC offers learners a pathway to enhancing their individual capabilities within all sectors of pre-hospital medical care.

The FREC course requires you to apply your training to a practical environment. Global Medical Projects, in conjunction with Meditech Global, can give you the opportunity to put this theory into practice with an attachment to a front line ambulance service in Mexico.  This experience will allow you to put into practice your training in both a primary healthcare environment while in an emergency clinic and then out on the road while seconded to a front line ambulance crew.

Our Costs Include:

[accordion clicktoclose=true][accordion-item title=”Accommodation”]

Accommodation on your project will be with either local families or in group accommodation. You exact accommodation depends on the number of volunteers and your project.

All accommodation is checked by our overseas staff and host families vetted. If you don’t feel comfortable in your accommodation, do please let us know as soon as possible and our overseas staff will do their best to make you more comfortable.

However, please keep in mind that you will be living in lesser economically developed countries so please don’t expect the same standards as home. Access to running water, electricity and other things that we take for granted WILL be limited but we’ll do our best to make sure you have the best that’s possible.

[/accordion-item][accordion-item title=”Pre-departure briefing”]

Our UK team is on hand to answer any questions that may pop up before you go. Please don’t hesitate to call or email to chat about anything that may be concerning you. You should especially not worry about asking any questions you may consider that we’ll think is stupid. The chances are that we probably asked exactly the same questions before we headed off on our travels!

You will receive pre-departure information that will tell you more about your accommodation and placement. This will arrive about 4 weeks before you depart. We can’t send you this immediately as exactly where you stay depends on the numbers that join us. However, by 4 weeks before you depart we will have a good idea of how many people are joining us and we’ll finalise the details of your accommodation.

[/accordion-item][accordion-item title=”Meeting you at the airport”]

Arriving in a new country for the first time can be quite daunting so our overseas team will be there to meet you with a big sign and even bigger welcome!

[/accordion-item][accordion-item title=”Induction and orientation”]

We think that it’s important to give you a thorough introduction to your new home for the next few months therefore, our overseas team will give you an induction and orientation covering everything you need to know from basic customs to where to change money.

[/accordion-item][accordion-item title=”Support from our overseas staff”]

Our overseas team are not just there to meet you at the airport. They’re also not there to molly cuddle you either. Our overseas team is on hand during office hours to do anything they can to help you get the most out of your experience. You will also be given out of office contact details to be used in the event of emergencies, so please rest assured that in the unlikely event that anything goes wrong, our overseas team will be there to help in whatever way they can.

[/accordion-item][accordion-item title=”Medical placement and donation”]

We have worked carefully to develop links with medical staff at hospitals and clinics in all our partner countries. It takes time for our overseas teams to develop and maintain these links so that we can continue to offer you the best medical experience possible.

We think it’s fair that the hospital should receive something in return for supporting you and Global Medical Projects so part of the project cost includes a donation to your host hospital.

[/accordion-item][accordion-item title=”Food (during week)”]

During your time with us we will make sure that your food is provided. Please note that sometimes this will be provided by your host family and sometimes by your host organisation. Where this is the case it is extremely likely that this food will be local food. Most of the time this will not quite be what we’re used to and can take some time to get used to. Rest assured it will be hygienically prepared and nutritious but it will be difficult for them to prepare foods which you are used to at home.

We’re sure that for most of you, eating the local food is part of the experience. If you don’t like the food, we urge you to try to persevere. Ultimately, if you are just not enjoying the experience we will do our best to make alternative arrangements. Please keep in mind however, that the availability of western foods maybe extremely limited and/or expensive so it may not always be possible to change things that much!

Most people elect to go travelling at weekends, so food isn’t always available at this time, particularly in those locations where we have our own accommodation as we often give the cooks the weekend off.

Not Included:

[accordion tag=h3 clicktoclose=true][accordion-item title=”Flights”]

We’re not a travel company, and as such we do not arrange flights. However, we can help you to make the necessary arrangements and suggest people to speak to.

Additionally, many people join us as part of a world trip so it’s often easier for you to arrange your travel as part of a round the world ticket.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like help arranging your flights.

[/accordion-item][accordion-item title=”Insurance”]

As many people join us as part of a world trip, we do not include insurance as part of the projects. However, we are happy to introduce good companies that can provide you with excellent and affordable cover.

[/accordion-item][accordion-item title=”Spending Money”]

You will need additional spending money for travel to work, weekend excursions and gifts. Exactly how much to take is a matter of great debate but contact us and we’ll be happy to give you a rough guideline on how much you will need.

[/accordion-item][accordion-item title=”Visas”]

Many of the destinations require you to purchase a visa. We can arrange the visas for you but this will be an additional cost of up to £100.

[/accordion-item][accordion-item title=”Inoculations”]

Most of our countries will require you to be inoculated against diseases that have been eradicated at home. We can advise on which inoculations you will need but will encourage you to visit your doctor or a local travel clinic where they will discuss the best vaccinations for you.

Some of these vaccinations will incur costs so budget accordingly.

[/accordion-item][accordion-item title=”Food during weekend or independent travels”]

We’re happy to provide food when you are on a projects with us or staying in our accommodation but when travelling you will need to buy your own food. In most countries good local food is incredibly cheap. Western food is a luxury and is priced accordingly!
