Join 13 paramedics through their shifts on the road and in the air by tuning into Paramedics, a new 10 part series television series on Channel 9, giving you a rare behind-the-scenes look into our daily work.
Proudly filmed in Victoria, Paramedics gives you unprecedented access to your ambulance operations, helping to raise awareness of the work of paramedics and some of the unique demands and challenges we face to deliver the best emergency health care for you.
When filming for Paramedics was announced earlier this year, Ambulance Victoria CEO Associate Professor Tony Walker said the Series provided a great opportunity to strengthen Victorians’ connection with their ambulance service.
“How we connect with our patients and offering the best care to the community is our priority. Being able to show that important connection through real stories is a unique opportunity and one we are very excited about,” Associate Professor Walker said.
“Victoria’s paramedics are highly-skilled and qualified, and the nature of the job is highly unpredictable – you have no idea where you will go next or what you have to deal with. The job can be demanding, but is also very rewarding and we want to share those moments with you,” he said.
It’s our absolute privilege to bring you into the lives of our paramedics and the people they look after, and share their stories - the highs and the lows - with you throughout this Series. We hope you enjoy watching with us over the coming weeks.
