Every time I come to the hospital for some reason I am always impressed with the staff who work here. I know they are under paid, under pressure, under staffed and under appreciated but they do a great job.
I often have thoughts that I might have been something like a paramedic as I would enjoy helping people and doing a good job, but I know that the stress and pressure might not be good.
As long as I am helping people in my career I am happy. It might be help through fixing PowerPoint problems or connecting up new equipment, but I can see they are happy which makes me happy too.
I wonder if most paramedics are constantly stressed and near to quitting. They all look very calm and in control when I see them but under the surface are they crumbling away through too much stress day after day after day.
I appreciate the work that all NHS staff do. From the receptionists to physios, nurses and cleaners. They are all part of an amazing machine supporting the people of the UK.
I know people and politicians like to bash them and complain but they are doing a great job with what they have.
