Out with Local Paramedics

Today, I went out with a local ambulance crew from the Chertsey depot of the South East Coast Ambulance Service, which covers a geographical area of 3,600 square miles (Brighton & Hove, East Sussex, West Sussex, Kent, Surrey, and North East Hampshire).

I joined Critical Care Parademedic, Mark, and Paramedic, Dina - as pictured below - part way through their 12 hour shift. We responded to a range of emergency calls, including heart failure and related accidents. From an MP's point of  view, it is important to see first-hand the challenges faced by those on the frontline, and talk through some of the issues. I was thoroughly impressed by the technical skill, calm professionalism and dedication Mark and Dina showed in what were quite daunting situations. They are a real credit to SECAMB, and a reminder to me of the invaluable service provided by our fabulous paramedics.
