Scottish Health Award Winners

 Friday 3 November 2017

The Scottish Ambulance Service was nominated in four categories and won in all of them at the ceremony in Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange last night (Thursday 02 November).

Pauline Howie, Scottish Ambulance Service Chief Executive said, "I am delighted to see a broad cross section of the Service recognised at the Scottish Health Awards this year. The delivery of high quality clinical care by our staff and volunteers is right at the heart of what we do. The fact that we are saving more lives than ever before, treating more patients at home where they want to be cared for, and improving staff experience, in the context of rising demand and patient expectations, is testament to the care, compassion and dedication of our staff and volunteers.”
