Welcome to Paramedic-Why?


This site is aimed at student paramedics, newly qualified paramedics and anyone else who is new to, or learning in, the field of pre hospital care.  Plenty of the content may even be useful to those with experience.


The ‘Call Given As’ section was the original concept that everything else has been built on. The idea being that whilst  en route to a call you can look up quick reference notes based on the call description, or what it is ‘given as’. The notes are designed to get your head into the right thought process for dealing with whatever type of call you have been dispatched to.


This website is the culmination of a project I have been working on since 2014. Initially I had planned for a pocket book, then moving into modern times I decided to put it in a mobile app. Thanks to the complications and financial issues around hosting an app I have decided to make the content available to everyone for free, on this website. I’ve used my limited IT skills to make the site look and work as much like an app as possible when used on a mobile phone.


Use the content  however it is most useful to you, keeping in mind that it does not replace your own clinical knowledge or judgement. It is simply intended as an aid memoir. 


The content will always be a work in progress as more is added and updated. If you have any suggestions or feedback please get in touch via the contact page and let me know. 


I hope this site is useful to you in some way and good luck in your chosen career,
