Members of frontline and support staff attended the event in Westminster on 8 September for the presentation of their certificates and medals.
Fifteen frontline staff received the Queen’s Ambulance Service Long Service and Good Conduct Medal and six of their colleagues received the London Ambulance Service Medallion, presented by Chief Executive Peter Bradley.
