WELCOME.

International Paramedics Day will be held on 8th July 2024 to build a better understanding of the breadth and depth of work carried out by paramedics around the world. 
This is a relatively young profession but it is growing rapidly with a very wide range of paramedic roles being carried out in different fields and we want to showcase this diversity in 2024.

We cant wait to announce this year's theme. Check back here soon!

Launched in 2022, International Paramedics Day takes place on the 8th July every year, as this marks the anniversary of the birth of Dominique-Jean Larrey, the man often referred to as the 'father of modern-day ambulance services'.

International Paramedics Day has been created, organised and run by the College of Paramedics in the UK, with support from professional paramedics' organisations from around the world.

THEME FOR 2024.
