College Course Is A Life Saver … Literally!

Access to Paramedics Students

The London Ambulance Service helped bring to life a course for aspiring paramedics at Kensington and Chelsea College.

Students on the Access to Paramedics Course were given a first hand account of life in the emergency services when paramedic Bob Fellows recently visited the college’s Wornington Campus.

Bob, a qualified paramedic with the London Ambulance Service (LAS), gave students career boosting tips and advice on picking university courses that enable them to become fully qualified paramedics. He also shared his own experiences from a 25 year career in the emergency services.

The three hour visit also gave students the chance to explore a series of life saving kits carried by paramedics and ask questions about the medical paraphernalia contained inside.

Speaking of his visit, Bob Fellows said: ‘There was a lot of enthusiasm among the students. They were certainly keen to make the most of my visit and thoroughly quizzed me on the different aspects of my role as a paramedic!’
