There are however British medical teams - available from Warmacre |Game (a very underrated range of excellent figures). They have two paramedics in the set along with four British bobbies for £6 !
The figure on the left though has a Studio Mini's zombie plastic torso and arms from goodness knows where, though I suspect they're from the Wargame factory zombies.
The case he is carrying is scratch-built from a central body of cork with slivers of cork for the end and side pockets. The handle is a very small staple, straightened out then gently curved and forced into the cork, as it's a very tight fit it didn't require any gluing.
The Hi-vis vest is inherent in the Studio Mini though it's meant more of a college -type jacket. as I later found when painting it, but I think it does the job.
Blue plastic gloves feature a lot with paramedics and I thought it helped break up monotony of the figure along with the red medic case (also found by googling).
For the second figure I used the torso from the survivours boxed set (intended for the cop-type character) with suitable arms - Right handed arms with open hands are quite rare as most are carrying a weapon of some description or have shirt sleeves etc.
Other than varnishing, I'm happy that these are as finished as they will ever be, they look distinct enough and are fit for purpose (well for my purposes anyway) and at least it's another two figures off my current painting tray.

My gaming table is currently in a state of flux (OK, for in a state of flux read - "it's a mess) following the gluing, converting and basing of figures and as I continue to work on the doll houses.
