Jamie Miles

NIHR Clinical Doctoral Research Fellow (Paramedic)


Biography

Since qualifying as a paramedic I have enjoyed a diverse range of clinical settings.  This includes frontline ambulance work, minor injury units, medical repatriation and specialist cardiac arrest response cars.  I joined the University of Sheffield in 2017 and have been mainly investigating ambulance conveyances to the Emergency Department.  this has been part of the CLAHRC Y+H Avoiding Attendance and Admission in Long Term Conditions theme.  I am the co-module director of Prehospital Emergency Care alongside Dr. Justin Squires.  This is part of the MSc Advanced Emergency Care provided by ScHARR.  I am starting my Clinical Doctoral Research Fellowship into risk prediction modelling of ambulance service conveyances to the Emergency Department.
