Working as a paramedic in London will give you
a sense of satisfaction that is found in very few other jobs.
Every day is different, yet rewarding. Every
day you will be giving something back to the local community.
You will be responding to 999 calls, working
with a crewmate, or perhaps on your own. And you will assess and
treat a wide range of patients. On one shift you could be
delivering a baby or resuscitating a patient whose heart has
stopped, the next you’ll be chatting to an elderly person who
has fallen in their home and needs help to get off the floor.
And at every call, people will put their trust
in you and your clinical skills. You will make key decisions
on the treatment that they need—and whether you should treat
them at home, get them to hospital, or take them to a walk-in
centre or minor injuries unit.
