Rachael Grant-Smith


School of Health, Science and Wellbeing

I am a Paramedic lecturer. I started my career on the front-line ambulances in a variety of locations. I then moved on to work as an Emergency Care Practitioner in a minor injuries unit where I diagnosed and managed various minor injuries and illnesses. Having a passion for education I decided to come to Staffs Uni to help educate the next generation of clinicians.
