Just recently she successfully passed all of her first-year exams and began her placements with emergency care teams at NEAS. Her family tell us how excited she was to begin her career as a paramedic and how she loved every day at NEAS, seeing everyone and working alongside her colleagues.
Georgia had worked for the Trust for two years and had built a network of friendships across our service, as well as with her fellow students.
Georgia will be greatly missed and on behalf of everyone here at NEAS, including our patients and the communities we serve, we offer our sincere condolences to the family.
This will deeply affect many people within our service and we are supporting our staff and students during this very sad time.
We will not be making any further announcements. This statement is the only information that we will be sharing with the permission of Georgia’s family.
