The news was announced by the College of Paramedics, in association with Galen, the privately owned pharmaceutical company.

The Dr John Hinds Scholarship is presented in memory of the late Dr Hinds, a doctor at Craigavon Hospital who was regarded as an inspirational leader by paramedics and emergency medical technicians, and indeed, by anyone with an interest in pre-hospital care across Ireland.

Dr Hinds, who died in an accident five years ago, gave a huge amount of his time educating and supporting paramedics and ambulance staff.
