About Us

Brooke Petter Associates Ltd (BPA) was established as a company in October 2018.  Its formation marked the bringing together of a network of key individuals who had previously worked extensively on national and regional paramedic projects over the previous two decades.   Combining this expertise into one network, founders Jim Petter and Jason Brooke’s motivation was to support employers and the health care system to maximise the potential of paramedics as part of the modernising NHS alongside supporting Paramedics to reach their full operating potential within that system. 

For organisations we offer Paramedic specific services and advice on:

  • Paramedic recruitment and workforce supply
  • Sector-specific education, training and development
  • Healthcare innovation and partnership working
  • Clinical supervision models, tools and resources
  • Networking, wellbeing and peer support
  • Project management and organisational development
  • Models of employment such as portfolio or rotational working
  • Practical guidance on the GP DES Reimbursable Role Schemes to ICS partners including PCNs
