Ambulance awards! 200 attend gala night

200 employees attend big night out

NEAS showed off its finest at this years' long service and staff awards.

Over 200 guests attended the event at the Marriott Hotel in Sunderland where 40 staff received a long service medal, award or certificate which added up to 850 years' service!

NEAS Chief Executive, Simon Featherstone said, "I am incredibly proud to be at an event like this. We lead complicated lives, dealing with increasing demand and decreasing finances. But everyone here tonight should be intensely proud of what has been achieved.

"Because of everyone here, NEAS is generally regarded as the most innovative and high performing ambulance trust in England. I am confident that this is well founded and shows in the length of service and breadth of awards we have seen tonight.

"I would like to give a special mention to the families, partners and children of NEAS staff for the commitment they show. We are not there at the weekends and overnight and our families adapt to that. Without them, we could not do our jobs and they deserve our applause."
