Dr Paul Street is a Teaching Fellow in the Department of Adult Nursing & Paramedic Science at the University of Greenwich.

Paul originally trained as an Enrolled Nurse in 1982, and since then has developed a broad background in clinical practice, practice development and education. He believes that patient care should be truly individualised and based on the best possible evidence. This belief also fuels his passion for teaching and creating environments that allow students to learn in both experiential and theoretical ways, to deepen their knowledge of themselves and the patients for which they care.

He currently acts as a Link tutor with a range of clinical areas at an acute NHS Trust. Paul teaches across a range of courses at pre-registration nursing and paramedic levels, to post qualifying and doctoral programmes. This includes subjects like: clinical skills; communication; professional issues; research methodologies; and Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) teacher preparation.

Paul provides educational advice and support for colleagues and facilitates a range of staff development for new and existing lecturers. Additionally, he oversees the activity and development within a suite of six clinical skills laboratories across the department.

Paul has a wide range of experience in curriculum development which spans provision across NMC approved Practice Teacher, Paramedic Science, and pre-registration nursing and midwifery programmes. He also participates in quality assurance activities across the department and has membership on a range of committees.
