Profile

Mr Malcolm Tallis completed five years as an emergency medical technician before taking on an intensive foundation degree in paramedic science.  Within this degree he was taught about best quality clinical practice in the pre-hospital arena.  From this degree he was able to qualify as a paramedic and gain Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) registration.  Within 15 months of qualifying, Mr Tallis was a Clinical Team Mentor where he was responsible for mentoring and guiding the paramedic students through their course and ultimately signing off their competencies to become a paramedic.  Furthermore, the role allowed him to work with existing staff to ensure best quality service was being provided to the patients we cared for.

To increase his medical knowledge and skill base, he undertook a degree in Emergency Practice which allowed him to work in minor injury units, GP surgeries and accident and emergency departments.  This degree furnished him with extended knowledge he could relay into the pre-hospital arena.  The minor injuries and minor illnesses knowledge and practice allows him to give enhanced care to my patients and mentorship to his students.

Mr Tallis has always had an interest in the law, specifically how it applied to the ambulance service.  He undertook a masters degree in medical law and ethics, which included modules about expert witness law, where his dissertation investigated the law pertaining the ambulance service or, as it was found, the lack of it.

Experience of giving evidence

None so far, Mr Tallis has written many reports during his time as an investigations officer.  These comprehensive reports were submitted to the Integrated Care Boards, the family of the patients and could be used through any court process.
