Emergency Medical Technician, North West Ambulance. Peer Supporter, TRiM Assessor & NWAS Blue Light Champion, Time to Change Champion.
I am Paul, I’ve been in the Ambulance Service for 5 years now - going on 6. I love my job. I’m an EMT1 & I lovely the diversity and change in every job we go to. Some people say no 2 days are the same, in my job, no 2 jobs are the same. I was previously a driving instructor before joining the service, so it was quite a change.
I am a strong advocate for mental health in the services. I myself had a few problems back in 2016 & Our Blue Light were there for me and helped pull me out the other side. So i know first hand how helpful a service like Our Blue Light is. I’m a TRiM assessor with NWAS which is fairly new in South Cheshire (Where I work) so I’m loving the challenge of bringing into the service. I’ve been with NWAS Blue Light Champions since 2015 and helped bring it into the service along with my colleagues and it’s going from strength to strength
I go into Our Blue Light because I wanted to give something back after they helped me in 2016. I love the work of IT & Social media director & helping my peers with their mental health and wellebing. I hope you enjoy the site, and any suggestions or comments, feel free to email me.
