Long-serving members of staff and retirees who clocked up nearly a thousand years’ service in the country’s busiest ambulance service have been recognised at a ceremony.
Twenty-six frontline staff who completed 20 years service received the Queen’s Ambulance Service Long Service and Good Conduct Medal and nine of their colleagues received the London Ambulance Service Medallion. The medals were presented by Chief Executive Peter Bradley.
Twelve retirees from across the organisation, with a combined 405 years with the Service, were presented with glass blocks, bells and a certificate by Chairman Richard Hunt.
Members of frontline and support staff, as well as their families, attended the event in Westminster on 10 March.
Peter said: “I pay tribute to everyone who received an award, whether it be for long service or retirement – it’s a great achievement.
“We shouldn’t forget the important part that partners, family and friends play – they have the important job of listening to the stresses and strains of our staff, who do a very difficult job day in and day out.”
