Father and daughter paramedics have been working overtime together on the front line to help the fight against coronavirus.

Brian Chipman, 41, has been responding to emergency calls alongside daughter Yasmin Turner, 24, during the pandemic.

The pair usually work in different areas for the North West Ambulance Service, but have joined forces this week.

Brian's wife - Yasmin's mum - Angela is also training to be a paramedic, having worked for NWAS for a number of years.

Brian joined the service as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) back in 2009, inspired by the treatment afforded to his father.

He has since qualified as a paramedic and is usually based at Central Park.

Daughter Yasmin decided to follow in his footsteps and has been on an EMT apprenticeship since last year, which she is soon due to finish.

Yasmin always wanted to work in health care and was inspired by her parents to join NWAS.

It is something that has touched all our lives.

"My mum has inspired us both to do this job, to never give up and that you can work your way up," Yasmin said.

"That's what we hope to do."

North West Ambulance Service have branded the trio their 'NWAS superstars'.

"Please stay at home unless it's for something essential," Yasmin urged the public.

"Please only ring for an ambulance if you really need to and keep up to date with the guidance available from the government.

"Hang in there, be nice to each other and stay safe. "

The chief executive of London Ambulance Service has said paramedics do have enough safety equipment in the face of shortages of personal protective equipment for frontline workers in the NHS and social care.

Garrett Emmerson said: "We have enough equipment and the challenge has been to make sure we stay in that position and that we can get supplies and we keep supplies not only arriving here for us to use, but also to distribute out across our ambulance stations and get them on to ambulances.”

"It’s another part of the logistical challenge to make sure we can keep all of the equipment, not only PPE but medical equipment and our vehicles on the road."
