Emergency Care winner 2016 - Tina Dyer and Jan McLoughlin

Tina and Jan

Paramedic Tina and Advanced Technician Jan were nominated by a colleague in the operations centre for their involvement in responding to victims of a double murder. 

The two attended an emergency in Redcar in March this year where a critical patient had been involved in a serious assault.  

Whilst on scene dealing with the patient’s critical condition, just seven minutes later, the police and ambulance service were alerted to reports of a second person having been attacked, less than a mile away. 

The two volunteered from the scene of the first incident, to then attend the second along with the police, to give the patient the best chance of survival.  

Both patients were unfortunately fatally wounded. 

Faced with such distressing circumstances, their nominee wanted to recognise them for their calm and professional actions and the dignity and compassion they had for the situation and the patients’ family and friends.  

Described as ‘delivering amazing frontline care with respect to their colleagues and patients’, the two worked as a team in a stressful situation, with their commitment to save lives and help patients in times of need.

They showed the ultimate dedication to patient care, regardless of their personal feelings to the predicament.
