Am­bu­lance of­fi­cers most trusted

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

St John chief ex­ec­u­tive Jaimes Wood is ab­so­lutely de­lighted am­bu­lance of­fi­cers have ranked most trusted in the Mood of The Nation Hori­zon Poll.

‘‘It is won­der­ful to see am­bu­lance of­fi­cers con­tin­u­ing to earn the re­spect and recog­ni­tion for their ser­vice from the pub­lic that they de­serve,’’ Mr Wood said.

St John is the largest provider of am­bu­lance ser­vices in New Zealand.

St John cov­ers 89 per cent of the New Zealand pop­u­la­tion and 97 per cent of New Zealand’s ge­o­graph­i­cal area.

‘‘St John am­bu­lance of­fi­cers and their col­leagues at St John pro­vide am­bu­lance ser­vices to New Zealan­ders 24/ 7 – 365 days a year,’’ he said.

‘‘ Our am­bu­lance ser­vice treated and trans­ported more than 370,000 pa­tients last fi­nan­cial year and at­tended more than 305,000 emer­gency in­ci­dents.’’

‘‘ It is a credit to the ded­i­ca­tion, hard work and com­pas­sion of our staff and vol­un­teers that we con­tinue to rate so well in these types of polls,’’ Mr Wood said.
