It’s a tough couple of shifts for Maya as she approaches the end of her first month as a paramedic. She is sent, with her mentor Mel, to her first hanging where unfortunately, the patient has not survived. As Mel says: “Books can’t teach you this – this is reality.”
Her next case is to Christine who has fallen whilst running for a train. Judging by the swelling to her leg, it looks like she might have fractured it.
For Maya, she is growing in confidence but is well aware that it is only a matter of weeks since she left university. For all that, it’s clear that she loves her job and patients are benefitting from that.
