Twin paramedics retire after almost three decades caring for Londoners

‘Miracle worker’ twin paramedics are retiring this week after a combined 56 years of saving lives. London Ambulance Service’s Mark and Chris McCarthy, 57, have worked their last shift from Friern Barnet station, after treating thousands of patients during their 28-year careers. Chris said: “Retiring was a very difficult decision to make but we do everything together so it seemed natural to retire together. We’ve had incredible careers, met amazing patients and worked with some great people.
