Spotlight On Paramedics

Thank you to┬áSouth Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust‘s Richard Walker, Learning and Development Officer, and Kristian Thomson, a newly qualified paramedic, who gave our Year 9 and Year 12 students a fascinating insight into the work of a paramedic. And thank you also to Kieran Bignell who is Consultant Paramedic Clinical Lead for Cornwall 111. They told us about the role of paramedics and other staff in out of hours roles or working for a doctor’s surgery and we also had a demonstration of a response car.
