Recognition for dedicated ambulance staff

Long serversLondon Ambulance Service staff, with a combined 780 years of lifesaving emergency services experience, were recognised at a ceremony last night (18 October).

Twenty members of frontline staff who completed 20 years service received the Queen’s Ambulance Service Long Service and Good Conduct Medal and three of their colleagues received the London Ambulance Service Medallion.  The medals were presented by Acting Chief Executive Martin Flaherty.

Twelve retirees from across the organisation, with a combined 320 years’ service, were presented with glass blocks, commemorative ambulance bells and a certificate by Chairman Richard Hunt.

Martin said: “I am proud to honour these members of staff for the years they have spent helping the people of London in times of emergency. 

“Their dedication to their duties throughout their years with the Service have ensured that Londoners continue to receive excellent medical treatment when they need it most.”
