Like mother, like daughter: Medic Mum’s pride as daughter follows in her life-saving footsteps

A Coulsdon mum has spoken of her pride this Mother’s Day that her daughter is set to become a lifesaver in the ambulance service.

Amelia Wilkie, 19, will complete her training to be a medic with London Ambulance Service this Friday (29 March), exactly 30 years after her mother, Tina, joined the Service.

Amelia, who will be based at Croydon ambulance station, was inspired to follow her parents into the profession after watching them help a victim of a serious road traffic collision outside their home in 2017. She quickly alerted her parents Graeme and Tina - who were off-duty - and sprang into action to help the injured teenager.
