The Trust’s annual Staff Awards are now open for nominations.
Every year the Trust holds a ceremony to recognise those individuals with long service and good conduct, and celebrate the fantastic work taking place within the service.
This year the event will be held on Thursday 15th October 2020, at Venue Cymru, The Promenade, Penrhyn Cres, Llandudno LL30 1BB.
As well as those traditional long service and good conduct awards, there are also category awards aligned to the Trust’s behaviours including personal excellence, team of the year and inspiring others. Also this year, to celebrate International Year of the Nurse, we have introduced three extra awards for Nurses within the organisation.
The Trust welcomes nominations from everyone, including staff, volunteers, patients, members of the public and partners.
Chief Executive, Jason Killens, said: “We could not function as an ambulance service if it were not for our staff and volunteers, so it’s really important that we celebrate their contribution.
“Our Staff Awards ceremony is a brilliant way to recognise the sterling efforts of our people who demonstrate overwhelming commitment and do a great job for the people of Wales, every day.
“Often, our people don’t realise that what they do is special; they see it as part of their daily job, so the Staff Awards are an opportunity to pause and reflect on their achievements and to say a big thank you.
“We heard some incredible stories of dedication and commitment at last year’s ceremony and I already know that this year’s event will be another fantastic evening.
“This year I am also looking forward to recognising International Year of the Nurse with three standalone awards, specifically for Nurses within #TeamWAST.
“I’m so inspired by the excellent service we provide across all aspects of our work, throughout the whole organisation, and I look forward to seeing this year’s shortlist.”
