In his role as a Physiotherapy Technical Instructor he completed multiple rotations throughout the hospital which included; Respiratory Medicine, Cardiac Intensive Care, Elderly Care, Trauma and Orthopaedics, Chronic Pain Clinics, Musculoskeletal Outpatients, Amputee's and Neurology.

He graduated with a first class honours degree in 2016 and has since been employed by South East Coast Ambulance Service.
Since qualifying as a Paramedic Ash has completed work both in and outside the ambulance service.

He has also qualified as an NAEMT instructor for Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) and Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS) courses.
In his current role he works part time as a Teaching Fellow at the University and part time as an Experienced Paramedic with the local Ambulance Service.
