South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SCAS) is encouraging members of the public to vote for the first time in the Trust’s annual staff awards, the Ambies.

Nominated by the public, the People’s Pride Award, sponsored by O&H Vehicle Conversions, will be presented to the SCAS member of staff or volunteer who has been recognised by people outside of the organisation as going ‘above and beyond’ the call of duty.

 

As well as nominating individual employees or volunteers, members of the public can also nominate a team or group of people who deserve to be celebrated.

The reasons for the nomination can be completely personal to the nominee, such as nominating an individual or team for:

  • Providing excellent treatment, care or advice to the nominee, their friend, family member or work colleague
  • Working tirelessly in the community to make local areas safer and bring people together
  • An inspirational health campaigner or fundraiser
  • Being a real ambassador for SCAS and/or the NHS
  • Giving up their time frequently or over a long period to help others
  • Overcoming adversity to achieve a great personal or professional goal

This is not an exhaustive list, so for whatever reason an individual, group or team deserves to be recognised as the ‘pride of SCAS’, nominate them today.
