Sometimes you get a job which gives you a gentle reminder not to prejudge what you are responding to.
Sometimes you cant help jumping to conclusions according to what is displayed on the screen in the car/ambulance which has been gained from what the patient or relative has told the call taker.
Sometimes it comes through as something innocuous and possible even something that gets the old ‘they called 999 for that!’ going, which turns out to be a true emergency.
Sometimes it comes through as a serious complaint but in someone so young that you go in thinking ‘yeah right!”, only to find that actually it is something bad.
These happen every now and then.
Its now 05:25, and I have just had two back to back.
More to come next week!
