Beccy Denham

Senior Lecturer in Paramedic Science

Qualified as a Paramedic in 2009 and worked for West Midlands Ambulance Service, left front line practice at the end of 2017 to pursue a career in education.


Rebecca qualified as a paramedic in January 2009, and took up employment with West Midlands Ambulance Service. Initially working on a DCA, then as a community paramedic, and then rapid response vehicle.

Mentoring paramedic students was a key focus from early in Rebecca’s career and this developed into a keen interest in education, leading to her joining the University of Worcester as a Senior Lecturer in Paramedic Science in October 2017.

Rebecca has always been a passionate supporter of the move of paramedic education into the Higher Education sector and looks forward to working alongside University of Gloucestershire to continue its development.
