Gemma Howlett

Senior Lecturer in Paramedic Science

Allied Health Professions

I am a Senior Lecturer in the Paramedic Science Team. I joined the University from academic posts in UWE and University of Worcester.


I am a senior lecturer in Paramedic Sciences and have been in the ambulance service for 10 years. I am a registered Paramedic. I am passionate about the provision of excellent values based education for all Paramedic's and Allied Health Professionals and believe that education is a catalyst for positive change within the healthcare sector.

I have an interest and passion in making the paramedic and Higher Education profession more inclusive and more representative. I am particularly interested in addressing the gender balance in senior management roles in both the service and the University sector. I am involved in several projects within the University aiming to increase diversity and representation and am a very proud member of the National College of Paramedics diversity steering group. I am interested in finding out about the barriers that exist within both professions that have prevented inclusion and representation.
