About ABC Paramedic Services
ABC Paramedic Services was set up by our Training and Event Manager, Craig Gray.
Craig spent fifteen years working in front line Emergency Services within the Scottish Ambulance Service in Edinburgh. The final six years of this was spent as a First Response Paramedic on a Rapid Response Vehicle dealing predominately with Class A / Red (i.e. potentially life threatening) emergencies.
In 2011 Craig became the first Paramedic in the history of the Scottish Ambulance Service to be awarded ‘The Chief Executive’s Special Award’ for displaying the highest levels of commitment and professionalism in his job.
Craig’s considerable knowledge and expertise extends to the private sector including delivering First Aid Training to Healthcare Professionals, courses at the Royal College of Surgeons, and providing Medical Cover at events such as ‘T in the Park’, ‘The Edinburgh Tattoo’ and the ‘Queen’s Garden Party’.
In 2012, Craig provided Paramedic level cover as Chief Medical Officer at the ‘Urdd National Eisteddfod’ festival in Wales with over 100,000 spectators in attendance.
Craig has also employed his medical skills for charitable causes, running a medical clinic in a remote part of North East India as well as being involved in a pioneering ‘out of hospital Cardiac Arrest’ study aimed at improving CPR skills.
Craig takes a very personal, hands-on approach to the business and is actively involved in the strategic developments of all training, events, and projects.
“Right from my initial contact with ABC Paramedic Services to enquire about a patient transfer for my dad, I knew that I had chosen the right company to help us. … Nothing was too much trouble in the lead up to the day, and Craig kindly kept me updated throughout the day of transfer, as I was unable to be present.”
