LONDON — An experienced paramedic has been suspended for a year after being found guilty of a string of professional failings.
Barry Fogg, a former emergency care practitioner with the East of England Ambulance Service, based at Southend station, failed to properly assess a patient, left treatment to junior colleagues and then did not immediately log back on for more emergency jobs.
