On Australia Day we salute our Australian workforce as we prepare to recruit more Aussie lifesavers

The UK’s biggest ambulance service is marking Australia Day, 26 January, by celebrating the Australians working in its team, as it prepares to hire more medics from Down Under.   Nearly 25 per cent of London Ambulance Service paramedics are Australian. Many of the more than 500 Aussies in the Service will spend the day on shifts 10,000 miles away from their country of origin, helping Londoners in need. The Service is returning to Australia in February to interview around 250 more Aussie paramedic hopefuls.
