PROFESSIONAL REGISTRATION UPDATE

PROFESSIONAL REGISTRATION UPDATE

Registration has now become a reality and we congratulate paramedics on becoming part of the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme.
 
AHPRA received over 17000 applications nationally and almost half have been handled.

Once you’ve been accepted, you will be able to track yourself online in the National Register.
 
The majority of applications should be finalised by the end of February 2019.
 
Due to the efforts of United Voice delegates and the Ambulance Team in supporting and assisting members through this event, there were less than 1.5% of QAS employed paramedics who did not apply for registration.
 
QAS have consulted with United Voice and a plan has been put in place to address these staff members’ situations on a case by case basis.
 
There’s also an expectation for each individual to provide a copy of your registration certificate and number to your employer.
 
A reminder that United Voice has a specialist team of industrial advocates who are familiar with the National Law for the professional registration of Paramedics and who will be able to provide support and assistance for any member who is required to have dealings with the regulator, AHPRA, in the course of their career. 

It's important to seek specialised advice from our industrial team in order to ensure you meet all of your obligations around mandatory reporting or when you may find yourself needing to respond to a notification regarding your registration as a result of a complaint made about your clinical skills, or general professionalism.
 
Only financial members of United Voice Qld will have access to our industrial specialists covered by the union as part of their membership. This is a good reason to become and stay a financial member of your union.
