Click the above link to see the BBC’s take on the exploits of our very own HEMS doctors and paramedics as they head out on mission.
The series was filmed with ourselves over the past few months with the cameraman
joining the crew whenever it was operationally appropriate (and a British accent likely to be heard in the cabin).
We think they’ve given a good feel for the vast cross section of patient groups, distant geography and difficult environments our service is asked to deal with every day.
NB – please note that John Glasheen (pictured above) whilst featuring in the BBC’s gallery of British docs abroad, in fact hails from Tipperary in the Republic of Ireland. We don’t believe this was due to any misdirection on their behalf but simply a result of not being able to understand his accent.
I heard you guys even topped the Royal Wedding for audience numbers.
Jolly well done. BTW – are there ANY Aussie medics working in Sydney?
I for one am an aussie medic working for HEMS but weeks can certainly go by where I hear nothing in the tearoom but “Kate and Wills this” or “scones and jam that”…
Our British docs are perhaps keener on the pre-hospital missions due to a desire for extra sunlight but the figures on this have yet to be validated.
