James Ronaldson

Advanced Retrieval Practitioner

James qualified as a Psychiatric Nurse in 2000.  He helped establish an Early Onset Psychosis Unit at Lambeth Hospital, London.  In 2002 with gentle persuasion from his wife he moved to Scotland where he completed his conversion course to be dual qualified.  The vast majority of his post-registration experience has been in emergency nursing.  Prior to joining the Emergency Medical Retrieval Service on a temporary contract, he was a Charge Nurse and Emergency Nurse Practitioner in the Emergency Department of the Royal Infirmary of Glasgow.

He enjoys providing critical care and believes strongly that this should be delivered in a compassionate manner.

Away from work James strives to stay in peak physical condition to meet the challenges of the job and the demands of his young family.
