Having family and friends working in Emergency Medicine this was easy to relate to, with many a similar story heard over the dinner table or at the pub. I loved the gallows humour and the "say it like is" attitude that accompanied the majority of this audiobook. Humour being the lifeline of those that work in such professions. However there was still room for compassion and some genuinely tear inducing moments.
This is one paramedic's views and experiences of his job, the people he comes across and the ambulance service in London as a whole.
Interesting yes, but I wish it had been written by someone else. The author comes across as judgemental and opinionated. It would be good just to have the facts without all the asides, so that the reader/listener can make their own decisions about the different situations. Also it would have been better if the author wasn't trying so hard to be PC that they end up sounding bigoted. It would be better to not mention a patients colour, race or ethnic background than to mention it and then go on about how mentioning it isn't racist. The author needs to work on their descriptive writing or hire a ghost writer.
