Long-serving ambulance man receives MBE

One of the longest-serving members of staff in the London Ambulance Service NHS Trust has been awarded a MBE in the New Year’s Honours list.

For 42 years Trevor Vaughan has worked in a variety of roles for the Service. After a period “on the road” as an ambulanceman, he served for many years in the control centre before taking up his current position as Awards Manager.

“What a birthday present,” said Trevor, who will be 63 on January 1. “I am amazed, delighted, humbled and very grateful to those who made this award possible.”

Also for 42 years, Trevor has given up his spare time serving with the Metropolitan Police Special Constabulary, reaching his current rank of Assistant Chief Officer.

Trevor is well known for his charitable works and in recent years has taken parties of colleagues to Romania to carry out important building works for local communities.

London Ambulance Service Chief Executive Peter Bradley CBE said: “Trevor’s commitment, dedication, enthusiasm and care for others is recognised throughout the Service and well beyond. This award is very much deserved—I am proud of him.”
