SECAmb staff were joined by volunteers and members of the public at the first of the Trust’s annual award ceremonies.

The ceremony, for the east of SECAmb’s region, was held on Thursday, February 23, at The Orangery at Turkey Mill, Maidstone.

The event saw staff recognised for long service and Chief Executive’s Commendations awarded across a range of categories including clinical excellence, patient care and leadership.

The Deputy Lieutenant of Kent, Bill Cockcroft, attended as the Queen’s representative to present Queen’s Medals for Long Service and Good Conduct, while Trust staff were also recognised for 20 years’ and 30 and 40 years’ NHS service.

Among the staff who received Queen’s Medals for Long Service and Good Conduct was Robin Scott, clinical team leader at Eastbourne.

SECAmb acting chief executive Geraint Davies said, “These awards show the amazing work which is going on day in day out at SECAmb.

“It was an honour to present the commendations and the long service awards are always very humbling.

“I am immensely proud of the dedication, clinical skill and patient care shown by all our staff and volunteers.”
