    Good isn’t it.

    Got to be one of the best edited and filmed series for a long time, such great continuity of the calls to the call centre to the ambos, to the patients to aerial filming.

    Oh and the staff are excellent as well

    I love the use of tagged address with a brief synopsis of a call overlaid into the map, it gives a better idea of what else is going on near by and how frustrating it is for crews to be stood down yards from an address. It also gives the public and idea of why they may have to wait for a minor incident.

    Agree, I know a bit as my sister is an advanced paramedic but to see it like this is fascinating. I’m not going to even go on about the dedication and humility. Exceptional.
    Oh and Peggy FTW.

    Jesus, I’ve just started to watch this and bloody hell. Anyone that moans about the NHS can bugger off.
    Really well filmed, fascinating.

    Well put, this needs to be embedded onto the DM web page where you can’t look at anything on there until you have watched & understood what people working on the front line of care services have to go through.

    The miscarriage has just had me sobbing.

    EDIT: just seen the outcome. Bloody hell.

    Thanks for the heads up on this. Just watched the first episode (whilst on night shift on CCU!) and very much enjoyed it – as much as I think my job is nuts sometimes, I know I could never hack it as a paramedic, you guys deal with a whole other level of craziness.

    It’s been a really good series so far, I don’t usually bother watching anything like this but I’ve been impressed with this one.

    It’s been tremendous I’ve barely criticisd it all and I’m normally do.

    That last scene though that was a bit close to what I’ve gone through over the years, not ashamed to say it’s taken a toll.

    Tears once again.

    Miscarriages were always the hardest calls to take 🙁 especially when had to tell the distraught mother to keep everything that was coming out of her

    Some continuing exposure of frankly excellent people with a real vocation. Also, one real **** who was clearly in the wrong job.

    The BBC seem to have done the business on the “fly on the wall” stuff recently – the Lifeboat was excellent as well

    I may have swore at that bit.

    I was quite curious to see how the guys who I knew that were in the series would come across and I’ve got to say that they were outstanding which was pretty much what I’d expect of them.
    You always seem to get at least one person in these programmes though who comes across badly!

    Not really on topic but kibd of

    The other day latish i got stuck behind an ambulance doing forty with the blues flashing but no sirens. Must have hit a top speed of 40mph (national speed limit) considered overtaking!

    Now I’d have though they were carrying someone carefully but it was also leaving edinburgh heading towards moffat.

    So… why?

    It bloody well did – well done her! I would have exploded!

    They probably got stood down off a case and forgot to switch the lights off.

    Tell you what they’re bloody distracting if you are stuck behind them on a dark night.

    Is stabbing people up the arse a thing? Bagging?

    Which paramedic are we supposed to be angry with? The young guy with the quiff?
    Slight lack of empathy with the homeless guy, but couldn’t argue with his point… A failing of the system or someone who let go of the reigns….? Either way a waste of resources on a busy night.

    “Is he still anxious?”

    Alpin, I saw it more as a complete lack of ability to empathise and then an attempt to browbeat a colleague.

    The reason for him going in was ridiculous another pathway would have been better but his lack of empathy towards him was uncalled for.

    I do think he was acting up for the cameras a little….. Same goes for some of the folks in the control room taking calls and loudly repeating something odd that the caller has said, it’s quite common in places I’ve worked before, basically the call taker is saying “ere have a listen to this”…. it’s a little passive aggressive (ok maybe not the correct term but it’s early and I’ve only just woken up I’m struggling to brain properly)

    Agreed but that makes it worse.

    The ones in control I don’t think they were, by repeating something it can trigger a response in person telling you something utterly ridiculous to stop and think. You see it used on here a lot.

    The guy in control who had lost his twins and had dealt with the call from the parents of the baby in premature delivery. Unashamed to say it made me weep a little.

    Premier Icon Drac

    I wept at most of that part as it brought back so many memories I’d rather not have, my Mrs realised why I sometimes don’t talk when I get home or why I sometimes get angry.
