COVID Latest

We have updated our Coronavirus Webpage with the latest measures we are taking to provide you with as safe an environment as possible with regards to Coronavirus transmission.

Highlights include:

  • We are still open for delivery of courses if:
  1. You are a Key Worker (remember this isn’t just emergency services, please contact us if you’re unsure)
  2. Your course is required for you to perform your job role
  3. Your course cannot be delivered in a different way or time
  • Our screening processes now include Lateral Flow Testing – All attendees will require this test from 01/02/2021 (for the rules and regs on this please see our Coronavirus webpage)
  • We are continuing to adapt some courses for online delivery where appropriate.

We are constantly having to adapt our approach in response to latest evidence and government advice / legistlation. We understand that this can be confusing or frustrating but we hope that you understand why this is necessary. If you have any questions please read our Coronavirus Webpage and contact us if you’re not sure.

COVID-19 Statement – Education Announcement

In light of the current UK government guidance with regards, COVID-19, social distancing, education establishments, etc. We regret to inform you that all students currently studying with ORMS on our Paramedic Programmes will be placed on Temporary Suspension of Studies until 1st September 2020. 

This applies to both of our programmes, across all cohorts and years and will commence at 17:00hrs Friday 20th March 2020. 

It has been a difficult decision to stop your studies mid-semester, but this is a unique and rapidly changing outbreak and is unprecedented in terms of the impact it is having on almost every aspect of life in the UK at the moment. 

We recognise that this will be a disappointment to our students and that you may have questions with regards to this announcement. You will also understand that ORMS is working incredibly hard to minimise the impact that this will have on everyone. So, we would like to make an appeal to all students and practice educators, please ask any questions through the following link to minimise the impact that this will have on the office through phone calls: 

We will, of course, continue to monitor the situation and if matters change then we will make further announcements.  We will also be in touch closer to September to inform each student of their new module dates and timetables when we restart.

In the meantime, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your understanding and look forwards to seeing you all again very soon.
