Ambulance service appeals to registered paramedics

West Midlands Ambulance Service is putting out an appeal to registered paramedics who live in the region to re-join the profession to help treat the increasing numbers of patients.

The Trust has already significantly increased its capacity to deal with COVID-19 patients, but wants to go further still to ensure they can provide care to patients in their hour of need and save as many lives as possible.
As a result, bosses are looking for any paramedics who retired within the last two years, or who are working in the private sector for the likes of events medical companies, who would like to come back into the NHS to get in touch. Trust Chief Executive, Anthony Marsh, said:

“Over the last couple of years, we know that several hundred staff have retired from our service after giving many years of outstanding care to the public.
“We would like those paramedics to consider returning to WMAS so that we can increase the quality and amount of care that we can provide the public in these challenging times.
“Equally, we have already had a number of paramedics who normally provide medical cover at events such as horse racing come to us to offer their services, for which we are very grateful.
“We want to boost the number of paramedics we have available as much as possible, so re-employing former paramedics and those who work in the private sector who would like to join us makes sense.
“For those who have retired; I know how much the time you spent with us meant to you; many of you have told me that when we have spoken.  I wouldn’t ask you to re-join if I didn’t think it was the right thing for the public of the West Midlands and our country.”
Those who would like to join the Service either on a short term or long term basis are invited to apply via the NHS Jobs website.
