Daily occurrence in many ambulance services of stacking 20 or more 999 calls with no resources, response cars waiting on scene for ambulances with time critical patients for over an hour (my longest was 2 1/2 with a kid suffering status seizures), non time critical patients being left for well over six hours, treating patients in backs of ambulances in ED car parks for over an hour because the dept is overwhelmed, not having meal breaks in 12 hour shifts that often extend to 15 hours etc etc ad nauseam.
We have paramedics leaving the service in droves. The majority of our specialist paramedics have left for a better work/life balance origin now in GP practice - pays better as well

Does Ireland recruit international Paramedics for ACP positions?
Is there any overseas medics already work in Ireland please?
