Two paramedics performed first aid on themselves after their ambulance rolled in the Northern Territory's remote outback.

The St John's Ambulance personnel were injured when their troop-carrier crashed about 55km south of Tennant Creek at 2pm on Wednesday.

"Just a couple of cuts and bruises that they treated themselves until help arrived and another paramedic crew retrieved them," St Johns spokesperson Craig Garraway said.

"They're very lucky."

The two were taken to Tennant Creek Hospital with minor injuries while another ambulance was dispatched to the other non-emergency job were going to attend at Ali Curung.

Mr Garraway said investigations are underway but the driver was thought to be overtaking another car on a wet road whent the accident occured.
