Wednesday 20th March 2013 – 10am – Steve Parry.
Friends and colleagues at West Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) will bid farewell to one of its longest serving members of staff this Thursday when Bill Cody retires after 37 years.
Bill Cody (60), who lives in Wall Heath, Kingswinford, has been the WMAS Police Liaison Officer based at the Trust’s headquarters on the Waterfront Business Park, Brierley Hill since 2006. Previously, Bill was responsible for Community Relations at the former West Midland Ambulance Service.
Mr Cody started his career in 1976 as an ambulanceman based at Dudley ambulance station.
During his time with the Trust, Bill was involved in local politics as a Labour Party Councillor in the Netherton and Woodside constituency. He also had the honour to serve as Mayor of Dudley for the period 1996-97.
Speaking about his retirement from the Trust, Bill said: “It’s sad to say goodbye to all my friends and colleagues across the Trust. It has been a varied and enjoyable career, but it is now time to spent more time with the family and enjoy other interests.”
Bill will officially retire from the Trust at the end of March.
