SECAmb Awards South East Coast Ambulance Awards

On 6th October, Long service and special achievements awards were presented at the first of South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust’s (SECAmb’s) three annual awards ceremonies.

Staff, volunteers and members of the public gathered at Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking on the evening of Thursday 6 October for the awards, which primarily covered the Trust’s Surrey and West Sussex region.

Queen’s Medals for Long Service and Good Conduct were presented by Deputy Lieutenant Michael Hayman MBE. Staff were also presented with awards for 20, 30 and 40 years’ NHS service. SECAmb’s volunteer community first responders were recognised for 10 years’ service.

Chief Executive Commendations were presented across a number of categories including Exceeding Expectations, Demonstrating Compassion and Respect and Leadership. A public commendation was awarded to a group of work colleagues from Titan Garden Buildings in Ripley for their quick thinking and actions in coming to the aid of their colleague who cut his hand off with an electric saw earlier this year.

SECAmb Interim Chief Executive Siobhan Melia said: “I was delighted to join a Trust awards ceremony for the first time since I joined SECAmb in the summer. It was an honour to celebrate the long service of so many dedicated members of staff and volunteers and I was extremely impressed by the variety of nominations for commendations we received. They represent just a small fraction of the amazing work and care which takes place across our region day-in, day-out.”
