Those of you who read my blog regularly will know that I like to share information and sites which could be of interest. So if you are even remotely interested in the medical profession or have just always wondered what paramedics and doctors get up to on a day-to-day basis then this list of blogs that I have pulled together might be the one for you. To be honest I have been reading lots of medical based sites recently for a number of reasons and to save you some time trawling the internet I thought I would share some of my favourites.
Having read some of these blogs for the last couple of months, I can honestly say that the work that these guys do can be truly inspiring, so I have to officially doff my cap to them all for sharing their experiences online.
Some of the stories these writers share are as interesting as they can be shocking. I have read a few posts recently talking about hoax callers which just makes me feel sick to know people still call ambulances out on emergency calls when there are people who so badly need them.
Please note this list is just based on my personal preferences and not on any complicated metric system.
If you think you have a blog which would be a good to add to this list, please feel free to add a comment and share it.
A brilliantly written blog by a friendly Geordie paramedic and father. He has some interesting takes on things although I do get a bit lost on the more complicated health post.
