Representing West Midlands Ambulance Service at the Advancing Healthcare Awards 2014 today are (left to right) Staffordshire Area Manager Michelle Kelly and Learning and Development Manager Jennifer Zandbeek. These Awards, now in their eighth year, recognise and reward projects and professionals that lead innovative healthcare practice and make a real difference to patients’ lives in the healthcare science and allied health professions. The awards are unique in that they are UK-wide and cover all the professional and specialists groups whose achievements so often go unnoticed. The Trust has been shortlisted within the category ‘NHS Employers Award for Inspiring the Workforce of the Future’ for our Engaging Leaders Programme. We’re competing with three other nominees within this category.
