He joined the University of Greenwich in 2013, as a lecturer within the Paramedic Science team.

Rob joined the London Ambulance Service (LAS) NHS Trust in 1994 and qualified as a Paramedic in 1996. During this time, he developed a team leader role that was implemented by the LAS in 2000, and then in 2004 undertook a new role as an Emergency Care Practitioner (ECP). In this role, he was responsible for establishing a new 'see and treat' service within the LAS, identifying alternative care pathways, and working in partnership with GP out-of-hours to provide a home visit service.

The success of the role as an ECP gave Rob recognition to represent the LAS on a National Level, working with the NHS Modernization Agency and then Skills for Health to support the development of this role up and down the country.

In 2010, Rob worked in the Education and Clinical Standards department, to develop a workforce, both new and existing in all aspects of emergency and unscheduled care. Rob has an IHCD Instructional methods qualification enabling him to teach an IHCD Paramedic training course.
