Staff and volunteers celebrated in Service’s “VIP Awards”

his afternoon, London Ambulance Service staff and volunteers were celebrated in the second part of our annual ‘VIP Awards’ – in recognition of their outstanding contributions to our Trust values.

In a ceremony held virtually due to COVID-19 restrictions, but live-streamed to colleagues across the Service, winners and highly commended nominations were announced in categories for our values of Innovation, Collaboration, Professional and Respect and for adding huge value to their team and to our Service.

More than 125 nominations were made, celebrating and recognising nearly 500 staff and volunteers.

As part of the nominations, colleagues were also asked to link their nomination to a specific Trust value that they felt the person they were nominating showed within their work.
