Matt began his career in health care in 1990 with Hereford and Worcester Ambulance Service progressing to Paramedic Status in 2000. He enjoyed working as part of a crew on frontline ambulances and also as a community paramedic on a rapid response vehicle. While working as a paramedic Matt studied for and achieved BSc(hons) in Health and Social Care, with the intention of improving and broadening his professional practice. This has since led him to his current role as senior lecturer in paramedic science at University of Worcester.

Matt settled quickly into this new role and during his 5 years at University of Worcester he has achieved a Post Graduate Certificate in Learning and teaching in Higher Education and is currently studying for a masters degree in education. Having embraced his role in the education of student paramedics, Matt is also contributing to the development of the new curriculum design here at University of Worcester.
