The work of the London Ambulance Service’s paramedics and control room staff is to be featured in a brand-new BBC One documentary series.
Producers have been given access to the service’s frontline and control staff to give viewers an insight into how they deal with up to 3,500 incidents a day across the capital.
The BBC has previously featured the Met, London Underground and Crossrail project in a run of successful documentaries.
London Ambulance Service’s Director of Communications, Charlotte Gawne, said: “We’re very proud of our caring and compassionate staff who work hard in often difficult circumstances.
“From our emergency medical dispatchers who make critical decisions every minute to our front line ambulance crews who provide compassionate care to the most critically ill and injured patients in London around the clock.
“We hope the series will offer viewers an insight into how we work, at a time of unprecedented demand.”
The series is produced by Dragonfly, part of Endemol Shine Group, for BBC One.
Emma Loach, Executive Producer at Dragonfly commented: “The London Ambulance Service is the largest and busiest in the UK, serving more than eight million people, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
“This series will offer a unique portrait of a city of extremes and give an unprecedented bird’s eye view of the ambulance service as you’ve never seen before.”
