Yes, I know what you mean. I think there's a parallel with the last ambulance strike, when SJA filled in for them; that arguably reduces the incentive to treat the paid ambulance crews properly, but I'd feel bad about letting other people get caught in the crossfire.
In the case of East Croydon, I was thinking about using that argument if I asked them about their arrangements and they were uncooperative; basically, "if you want me to help you out then you should answer my question". The snag is that it's the person who's collapsed who really needs my help, rather than the current manager in charge.
Anyway, I think I will write a (paper) letter to the station, and ask them about this. If they don't come back with a sensible reply in a month or so, maybe I can then contact the HSE directly, and ask them to investigate.
