Paul Townley - Retires after 46 years loyal and dedicated service

We are very pleased and proud to announce that Paul Townley has finally hung up his first aid bag after a staggering 46 years. I had the honour of training Paul on his Paramedic Course and his loyal and caring qualities in delivering the highest levels of patient care have been there every day he has reported for duty. To never falter from those high standards for what is truly a life time achievement of public service is worthy of the highest accolades.


Paul Townley joined the ambulance service on the 25
th February 1975; his first day was at Quarry Street where he was met by Bert Carter.
It could have been different! Paul was offered 2 jobs on the same day back in January 1975, one for an ambulance cadet and the other as a GPO telegram boy. On the day the letters arrived it was a cold wet miserable day and Paul thought do I really want to ride a motorbike in this weather! The rest is history.
Paul spent 12 months in Albert Guinney’s cadets based at Quarry Street, Woolton and Anfield ambulance station. After spending his 18
th birthday at Wrenbury he qualified as an ambulance technician and moved across to Birkenhead ambulance station. Paul spent 30 years operationally and was promoted to Operations Manager for Wirral; Paul has gained a vast amount of experience working in many and varied departments within the ambulance service, Paul has said that he cut his teeth in management at Toxteth ambulance station managing the old Liverpool central division; this was a very interesting time and the staff were tough but fair, he really enjoyed the experience he gained working in one of the busiest areas within the ambulance service.
Paul has planned to devout some more time to photography which he took up 6 years ago; he also intends to travel to see his son in the South of France when Covid allows without the worry of who will cover his on-call!

Sad News - Stan McLachlan

Stan was a truly fabulous and caring Ambulance Technician who will always be remembered for his gentlemanly qualities and coolness under pressure. Stan spent most of his career at Toxteth Station but some will remember him as the Ambulance Liaison Officer of Arrowe Park Hospital.staff Stan McLoughlin

Please bear with us and we will soon have the website back up and running fully.
