A PARAMEDIC who made seriously ill patients wait in an ambulance while he went shopping and had a haircut has been struck off.
Dominic Colella left an 85-year-old with severe blood poisonong for 20 minutes before taking him to hospital – so he could stroll around M&S.
Colella, a 15-year London Ambulance Service veteran, was found guilty of two counts of misconduct while on 999 calls at a Health and Care Professional Council tribunal this week.
He admitted abandonong his colleague and patients to the council’s legal team, but failed to turn up to the hearing.
Chairwomen Gillian Fleming said the public would be “outraged” by his behaviour. She added: “He has shown little in the way of remorse.”
