A little while ago it seemed that every other shift I would be working with HEMS. Either RTAs, people falling through their ceilings or babies getting scalded.
The Doctor on HEMS at the time was a very nice Doctor, and after one job which we transported to the Royal London by road – she offered us the opportunity to visit the HEMS flightdeck.
While I was up there, I took this jerky smartphone video of the helicopter and the surrounding view.
I don't often get the chance to take videos or pictures of the jobs I go on (it often doesn't seem right, and I'm normally a bit busy) but in this case it seemed like the right thing to do. As you can see, the view is lovely – and were it not so overcast I imagine that on a quiet day you could get quite a suntan up there.
(If you are quick, you can just see the back of my old crewmates head as he disappears behind the helicopter).
