Description

What happens behind closed (ambulance) doors

Meet Tom, an Emergency Medical Technician for the London Ambulance service. It is Tom who shows up to pick up the drunk tramp, the heart attack victim and the pregnant woman who wants to go to hospital in an ambulance because she doesn't want to call a taxi. Tom is also a man who rails against the unfairness of it all, who bemoans the state of the NHS and who ridicules the targets that state that if the ambulance arrives within eight minutes and the patient dies it is a success and if the ambulance arrives in nine minutes and the patient's life is saved it is a fail.

Welcome to the topsy-turvy world of the emergency services. From the tragic to the hilarious, from the heart-warming to the terrifying, Blood, Sweat and Tea 2 is packed with fascinating anecdotes that veer from tragic to hilarious; heart-warming to terrifying and Tom deftly leads the reader through a rollercoaster of emotion.

In the brilliant and bestselling Blood Sweat and Tea Tom gives a fascinating – and at times alarming – picture of life in inner-city Britain and the people who are paid to mop up after it.

Captures the thrills, heartbreak and frustrations of medicine in a way that resonates with readers around the world.

About the author

Tom Reynolds began work for the NHS when he was 23 and specialised as an A&E nurse. He moved to the London Ambulance Service when he discovered that ‘he wanted to ‘torture the patients in A&E’. In his own words, this is ‘not healthy’. He has kept his critically-acclaimed blog since 2003 and is frequently quoted in the national press.

Customer Reviews

Amazing

Heart breaking, heart warming, funny, such a great read it's a shame that there are so many well meaning people who don't get the training or funding to do their job.

Thank God for paramedics and everyone who helps them do their job
