Patient Transport Service

WINNER: Jim Furneval

Jim was nominated by a patient who says, ‘you know you’re with someone special when you’re with Jim’. 

Having transported one of his patients for many years, Jim and colleague Steve have given him endless confidence to stand up, walk, navigate his front steps and get on board the ambulance during a difficult time. Good friends with similar interests in music, Jim even thoughtfully recorded hours of music in his own time especially for Terry to guess the singers and year. 

Before Jim retired, his patient wanted to be sure he was recognised as the most outstanding, caring ambulance man of all, whose humour and kindness will be a great miss. 

He wanted to say thank you for his quiet professionalism and for all the help he has given his patients and particularly his patient, now friend, who feels lucky to have met him.

HIGHLY COMMENDED: David Willey and Sheila Teixeira
