Edd has a clinical background, completing his BSc (Hons) degree in Paramedic Practitioner (Community Emergency Health) at the University of Plymouth in 2015.  Following this Edd was employed full time as a Paramedic at South East Coast Ambulance Service and became a Visiting Lecturer for Paramedic Education at Birmingham City University.

Alongside working as a Paramedic Edd studied his MA in Medical Ethics and Law part-time at King’s College London.  Midway through his studies he was seconded to a managerial position, working with some of the most vulnerable and complex patients that use the ambulance service.

Edd has an interest in mental capacity and mental health law and supports reform of the Mental Capacity Act and Mental Health Act, moving towards a “fusion” approach and compliance with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.  He wrote the content for the professionalism and clinical negligence modules of the College of Paramedics e-learning project and is contributing to a book on medical ethics and law for Paramedics.

Edd is a strong believer in the promotion of autonomy and moving away from a paternalistic approach to people’s care and treatment.  This has given him a passion for advising people on how they can ensure that their wishes are respected in the future, in the event that they lose capacity, through the use of advance decisions for the refusal of treatment and lasting powers of attorney.  

In his free time, Edd enjoys spending time on the beach, kayaking or sailing.  In the evenings he enjoys a few pints at his local pub, in the garden if it’s sunny.
