It’s a grand gesture. I know many paramedics who go from one incident to another without a break, without a chance to de-escalate what they have just experienced.

When I was a nipper and volunteered at the Isle of Wight County Hospital, Ryde, the cooks would make up nammit boxes for the ambulance crews. I remember one Staff Nurse telling me, “Mum’s the word,” as this wasn’t supposed to happen.

What is an essential worker ?
What is essential to some people is not essential to others.
