Chances are, that you probably have not seen the article that has done the rounds recently, regarding ‘nature-type’ people observing colonies of ants, which appear to have dedicated ‘paramedics’ amongst their legions. We s**t you not.
And it got us thinking:
Maybe the Health Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, could send a delegation of £10,000-per day self-employed NHS consultants, to initiate comms with the Ants, in order to find out if they would be willing to render much needed assistance to their human cousins?
In the S__ts & Giggles WhatsApp Admin Group, one of our oppos recently shared some information in relation to the amount of 999 calls which were outstanding on a late turn shift; there were shed loads of them!
And it wasn’t even a saturday or friday night.
It was just a typical week day. But the amount of ‘red’ calls which were outstanding, because there were no emergency ambulances to send, made us think that there MUST be an alternative?
And then, as if by magic, the ‘Paramedic Ant’ story was sent into us.
Now, we know that Politicians and Senior Management within some Trusts, proactively try to hide the resourcing issue. How do we know? Because our medic oppos tell us. But nonetheless, the issue is still there – it cannot be hidden.
And considering that the vast amounts of cash being ‘saved’ by cutting our emergency services and armed forces appears to be being spent on renovating the Houses of Parliament, then we have taken it upon ourselves to try and come up with a “cheap” way of shoring up an under resourced life-saving service, as no-one in Government seems that bothered.
We will Tweet this ‘Article’ to Mr Hunt, and will keep our fingers crossed that ‘paramedic ants’ might, in the not-too-distant-future, help relieve the extreme pressures being faced by our medic oppos (we might have to call them ‘ambulance driver-ants’ as Mr Hunt seems to get ‘ambulance drivers’ confused with ‘medics’).
We have a feeling, that an ants daily rate of pay, will be extremely low.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
