EMT1, TRiM Practitioner, Blue Light Champion Co-Ordinator, North West Ambulance Service. Our Blue Light IT Designer

I’m Paul, I’ve been in the ambulance service for 5 years now. I initially started in Yorkshire Ambulance, then transferred to North West Ambulance in 2014. I love my job, it has it’s ups and downs etc like any job, however I think it’s the most amazing job someone can have. 

After suffering with depression and anxiety in 2016, I became the regional co-ordinator for blue light programme within NWAS, where I met the founder of Our Blue Light. This is something I’m very passionate about, and raising public knowledge and supporting our colleagues in blue/green/yellow and whatever colour, is paramount to myself and my own wellbeing.
