Hello one and all!
Welcome to my blog.
I suppose that formality states that I should introduce myself so that we can all get to know each other a little and hopefully develop this blog to its fullest potential.
I am a 30 something paramedic. I have been working for the North East Ambulance Service for the past 8 years and have been working as a State Registered Paramedic for the last 5 years.
I have a beautiful wife and 3 wonderful children who like to keep me firmly rooted in reality whenever I walk through the door!
I am one of these strange individuals that every work place has. You know the one I mean… the one who loves his job, the one who stays positive about everything even when things seem to been all going a bit pear shaped.
I still enjoy coming into work every shift and wherever I go I try and tell anyone who wants to listen, how wonderful my job is. I am also a realist and know that sometimes things dont go to plan, things may get in the way of me being happy ALL of the time. But I tend not to dwell on those things.
I hope to share with you, the blog reader, the ups and downs of being a paramedic in the UK. The good times and the bad, and hopefully, after a while you too will understand why this work becomes more that just a job.
