Team­work, pas­sion and care cel­e­brated

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

DED­I­CATED Am­bu­lance staff were recog­nised at an an­nual awards cer­e­mony held in Bucks.

At a black tie event at Pinewood Stu­dios, in Iver, the an­nual AMBIES were held on Fri­day, Novem­ber 27 to recog­nise and cel­e­brate the amaz­ing ef­forts and ded­i­ca­tion of staff at South Cen­tral Am­bu­lance Ser­vice NHS Foun­da­tion Trust (SCAS).

The AMBIES are the Trust’s an­nual staff awards and show­case the very best ex­am­ples of ded­i­ca­tion, com­mit­ment and care.

This year’s event was opened by SCAS Chief Ex­ec­u­tive, Will Han­cock, who said: “The AMBIES never fail to im­press me. I keep think­ing that we can’t pos­si­bly bet­ter the team­work, in­no­va­tion, pro­fes­sion­al­ism and care that was cel­e­brated last year and ev­ery year I am proved wrong. It’s quite hum­bling, and a great source of per­sonal pride, to lead an or­gan­i­sa­tion where peo­ple care so pas­sion­ately about their job, their col­leagues and the pa­tients they look af­ter.”

Pam War­ren, the fa­mous ‘Lady in the Mask’, who sur­vived the Padding­ton Train crash in Oc­to­ber 1999, was the guest of hon­our and gave a mov­ing speech on the in­cred­i­ble work car­ried out by the am­bu­lance ser­vice, be­fore an­nounc­ing the night’s win­ners.

Com­ment­ing on the event and hav­ing con­grat­u­lated all the win­ners and nom­i­nees on the night, SCAS Chair­man Trevor Jones said: “This year’s win­ners are a truly in­spi­ra­tional bunch. We had 168 nom­i­na­tions for the 12 awards which is a record num­ber and speaks vol­umes about the qual­ity of peo­ple who work across all parts of SCAS.

“It’s been a real priv­i­lege to cel­e­brate the achieve­ments of ev­ery­one across the or­gan­i­sa­tion at this year’s AMBIES.”
