Not true! I went into the Ambulance Service as a non-emergency driver for nearly the first two years of my career. I was squeamish and had no medical background. I couldn’t even watch medical stuff on TV.
One night, while working overtime taking discharged patients home, I was confronted by a non-emergency driver from another large organisation. He was grey, could hardly talk, looked terrible and was asking me for help. I had no idea what to do, so I called over to the receptionist who immediately called the crash team. Now I would instantly recognise the symptoms of a heart attack, but that night hit me hard.
That was when I knew I could no longer be a bystander, the one who calls for help.
