So…it’s quiet here huh?
There are some issues surrounding why it’s so quiet, but here’s the main one.
At the end of the winter I got a promotion to “Accident and Emergency Team Leader”. I’m working with a whole bunch of awesome people (like Pally) and learning more every day. When I’m on shift I’m largely responsible for the day to day operations of the station, the vehicles and the crews that work from it.
There’s a lot to do and more to learn.
The thing is, it means that I’m on the road a whole lot less than I used to be, seeing fewer patients. I still get a good bit of road time, but it’s nowhere near the levels as when I wasn’t “management”.
There are moments of drama in my days, but they are moments typically around staff and their own dramas.
I’m not writing about the personal problems of my team on the internet. I’m sure that goes without saying.
Further to this, I’m on call for “Medic One”, A&E’s specialist pre-hospital team. When they’re called out to do their thing, it’s my job to transport the team and then manage the scene. These incidents are frequently unusual, significant and reported in the press, thus neatly removing any anonymisation I could perform, at least in the immediate sphere.
I could write about my personal life, what I’m up to (which is quite a bit, it should be said) but I’m not convinced you’d be interested.
Or I could post more photos.
Or I could smile, wave at Trauma Queen, say “Thanks, it was a blast” and close the blog.
I dunno; my drive to produce content is based on wanting to please you, my readers.
So here’s the thing.
If I wrote more under the “Journal” and “Photo” tags and less under the “Thrilling Installment” or “Ambulance” tag, would you still come see me?
Or would I be shouting into the wind?
Cos I don’t wanna shut down, but if you guys just want ambulance stories, then maybe this place has run its course.
