We’re proud to say that out readership is growing, and we couldn’t do it without all those staff, volunteers, partners and colleagues who have taken part and shared their amazing stories over the years. We’re dedicating this edition to you all.
Tania Seddon, based in our emergency operations centre, bravely shares her story of how being put into care at four years of age fuelled her and her husband Andrew’s journey to becoming foster parents.
We talk to Paramedic Deb Foster about being a first-time mum in lockdown. NWAS Chief Consultant Midwife Stephanie Heys gives insights into how the pandemic has affected new mums.
NHS 111 Health Advisor Chris Jordan talks about losing his 16 year-old-nephew after he drowned in open water, and how it drove his passion to work for the ambulance service. Chris and his family spend a lot of their spare time educating people about the dangers of swimming in open water, something we could all help spread the word about this summer with many planning to take staycations.
We interview Paramedic Nutan Patel about her career, culture and upcoming TV role.
There are a lot more interesting stories and features inside – we hope you enjoy it!
