Dale Maguire joined the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust in 2002, and spent his early career working as an Emergency Medical Technician before qualifying as a paramedic in 2008. Practicing in Wales’ Capital city, Cardiff, as a rapid response paramedic, Dale gained invaluable operational experience while exposed to a wide range of clinical presentations that only inner-city areas with certain socio-economic factors can create.
Having developed a keen interest in higher acuity trauma and medical patients from the outset of his career, Dale has gained an appreciation of how early critical care interventions can make a difference for this subset of patients. Dale is a passionate individual who is dedicated to enhancing and improving paramedic practice with a commitment to developing others within the profession.
He joined Swansea University as a lecturer in 2013 and in his current role he manages the DipHE Paramedic Science for Emergency Medical Technicians programme. Dale’s clinical interests are varied and include medical simulation, resuscitation and epilepsy.
