30th Anniversary Celebrations for the Cornwall Air Ambulance

This link will deliver a copy of my  presentation delivered at the unit’s 30th Anniversary Celebrations alongside that of my old colleague Paul Westaway who was the Senior Paramedic on our project. Many have since questioned why this story has taken so long to emerge and the simple answer is that I was never allowed to talk about it. The NHS manager in charge found that the real story was an inconvenient narrative for his PR campaign at the time. The required narrative was one that put him at the centre of the story. My part was neatly air brushed from the history books and it disappeared from the record. It is only now that the CEO of the trust has found out about the story and was kind enough to allow me to tell it.
