Emergency Care Assistant (Current Employee) – Wellingborough, Northamptonshire – 14 March 2018
A challenging role in very challenging times. Working for the NHS is not easy, it's busy, relentless and at times thankless, that being said it's also extremely rewarding. Everyday is different. every job is different, one job you could be bringing a baby into the world, the next could be holding a persons hand as they leave this world. It take a special person to work on front line emergency care, but it's worth it....as long as you can stay out of management politics it's the best job in the world.
Emergency Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Nottinghamshire – 8 June 2018
I enjoyed my long time with EMAS NHS TRUST In both Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire wide. I got to work with lots of the most amazing clinicians, and learnt alot of advanced Clinical Skills and Knowledge, miss the work so much. And want to come back.
lots of extras inc late, away from station & disturbed brakes
some very long blue light emergency distances to travel
All in all emas needs shutting down. Management couldn't careless about the road staff. Staff morale is rock bottom, and the management couldn't care less. Road staff welfare, wellbeing and health is completely ignored by team leaders, team supervisors and all the other management. There's more gaffers than you can shake a stick at, but they look after their own.
The training department is shocking and slapdash at best. Tutors who use Google to find the answers to fairly simple questions asked by the students. Question paper's for final exams that containt spelling mistakes that are written and marked by the same inexperienced tutor.
You are used daily on the road until you are fit to drop and then you are still pushed on further by obnoxious and rude control staff.
Hr and recruitment teams are like clowns, the left hand dosen't know what the right hand is doing. It's a wonder they manage to recruit and employ any staff at all.
Moving on and leaving emas, the best thing i ever did.
It’s like a toilet it’s going down fast, see how long you can hang the rim.

Red tape suffocates the whole of EMAS Moral has never been so low, There is more chance of raising the titanic than resurrecting this hole, I wouldn’t wish this job on anyone. I’ve seen to many leave, suicide, death before retirement.
You can escape with your qualification and be an asset somewhere else for better hours and pay.
This job will destroy you, your colleges and families
Paramedic (Current Employee) – Lincolnshire – 18 October 2017
If you work on the road for EMAS, you are treat like second class citizens. Managers are lazy, unhelpful. Big stick culture. Unappreciated no matter how hard you work or how many lives you save. Rotas get worse each time change. Morale on the road is lower then I ever thought it would get
Always late off, overworked, no support, no appreciation for the hard work staff do, constantly micromanaged, big stick mentality, unfriendly rotas, no support... the list is endless
