Synopsis

Nee Naw Real Life Dispatches From Ambulance Control by Suzi Brent

Suzi: Ambulance service, what's the problem? Caller: Help! My baby's not breathing! When you dial 999 for an ambulance, Suzi's could be the voice you hear on the other end of the phone. Working in one of the country's busiest control rooms, it is her job to stay on the phone until the ambulance arrives, and to give instructions that could save your life. From taking the first calls after the terrorist attacks on 7th July 2005, to delivering a baby over the phone, whether helping the child whose mum has attempted suicide, or dealing with the many regular callers - serial hoaxer The Banana Man, Sally the young alcoholic and Mad Brenda, each with their own surprising stories to tell - Suzi has heard it all. Nee Naw will take you on a whirlwind tour of life in the emergency lane, introducing you to some unforgettable characters. Suzi Brent will make you laugh, she'll make you cry, but never again will you dial 999 for a broken finger... Suzi: Ambulance service, what's the problem? Caller: I've eaten too much, and now I feel really sick. Can you die from eating too much?

An insider's guide to an enthralling world and, just like her job, the author's material couldn't be more dramatic or important * Daily Mail *


About the Author

Suzi Brent was born in 1977 in a remarkably boring suburb of London. When she was a child, she aspired to be a doctor but soon went off the idea as it looked too much like hard work. In 2004, inspired by the Christmas episode of Casualty, she successfully applied to become an Emergency Medical Dispatcher for the London Ambulance Service and has been working there ever since. Suzi is the author of the popular blog, Nee Naw (www.neenaw.co.uk). This is her first book.

It's information about new books so, for a book lover like me, what's not to like!

Joan Hill

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

Magda North

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.

Lesley Hart

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Sally Ellsmore

Lovereading has given me the opportunity to delve into new and exciting worlds of authors who I would never have tried before.

Glynis Elliott

The selections are so varied and the reader reviews are so helpful. A fantastic website for those who love books.

Ann Quintilla

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.
