We recently welcomed Ross Senior back to the Emergency Ambulance Service as a newly qualified paramedic.
Ross completed his three year Bachelor of Science degree in Paramedicine, which also included placements with the South-East Coast Ambulance Service and the East Surrey Hospital NHS Trust. He was awarded a First Class Honours degree.
During his course he was one of only a few students selected to take part in a HEMS (Helicopter Emergency Medical Service) critical care medical induction course run by Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance. He was also a member of the Army Reserves through the University of London Officer Training Corps.
Chief Ambulance Officer Mark Mapp said: “We are delighted to welcome Ross back as a full-time paramedic with the Emergency Ambulance Service. We have always been impressed by his dedication, drive and maturity, which is why we offered him the opportunity to work as a part-time ECA with the service four years ago. Ross has a long association with St John is a great example to other St John Cadets and Badgers who want to pursue a career in medicine or as paramedic.”
The former Elizabeth College student is no stranger to St John, he had previously worked for the service as a part-time Emergency Care Assistant during his university holidays and before that he had been a member of the St John Ambulance Cadets. He served as Cadet of the Year in 2015.
Ross returned to the island this summer and has joined Green Team at the Emergency Ambulance Service.
