Mike Belcher is a paramedic in Worcester and a Clinical Team Mentor to the current influx of student paramedics joining West Midlands Ambulance Service.
But recently, he was teaching much younger pupils about the work of the ambulance service when he visited a junior school at the foot of the Malvern Hills.
Mike was at Welland Junior School to show the children there a frontline ambulance and the equipment used by staff. His visit was part of the school’s “people who help others” curriculum.
Mike, pictured with Class 2 Maple Class, said: “For most of the children it was the first time they had set foot in an ambulance and they clearly enjoyed the experience – especially the lights and siren!
“The children have clearly done a lot of work this term and their knowledge of how the body works and the role of the ambulance service is a credit to both the children and their teachers.”
