Emergency Admissions: Memoirs of an Ambulance Driver.

Emergency Admissions: Memoirs of an Ambulance Driver by Kit Wharton (RRP £8.99). Available from Bookmark in The Crescent, Spalding, with £2 off and a further 20 per cent off with the voucher in this week’s Spalding Guardian (on sale April 12-18).

A machete-wielding drunk with a long history of mental illness; an S&M party gone horribly wrong; a teenage girl with suspicious abdominal pains; and a man who’s fainted, frightened he’s allergic to his cheese and onion sandwich... it’s just another day at work for Kit Wharton.

After a childhood pickled in alcohol and punctuated by parental fighting, Kit Wharton joined the NHS ambulance service.

He hasn’t looked back. This is his report from the frontline: 999 calls that hurtle him to the critical moments in other people’s lives.
