Hexagon announced as main sponsors of Ambies event

Oct 20, 2017 | News

The Ambies is the SCAS flagship event that recognises the exceptional work done by ambulance service employees, in both front-line and support roles, in the South Central region.

Staff who have gone ‘above and beyond’ in their job, and have embraced SCAS’s four key values of Teamwork, Innovation, Professionalism and Caring, are nominated for awards by their peers, colleagues and the general public. A panel selects the winners and runners up in each of the 12 categories.

This year’s Ambies will be presented at a black-tie event taking place on 24 November at Heythrop Park in Oxfordshire.

Nick Chorley, EMEA Public Safety Industry Lead at Hexagon, said “Hexagon is delighted to be the main sponsors for this year’s Ambies event. Our work with SCAS has allowed us to see first-hand what great people work there, both on the frontline and in support roles, and this is a fantastic opportunity to recognise those people and the outstanding work that they do.

“We at Hexagon have a shared passion with SCAS about using innovation and technology to deliver better outcomes for patients as efficiently as possible.”
