Colleagues from Louth Ambulance Station have won an award in ‘Partnership Working’ to recognise the positive collaborative outcomes they have achieved through working together effectively since moving into the joint Fire and Ambulance Station on Eastfield Road in Louth.
The joint station was officially opened by MP Victoria Atkins on the 17 November 2017 as part of the national approach to blue light organisations (police, fire and NHS ambulance) working more closely together.
Since the move, colleagues have been working and training alongside each other as well as strengthening their relationships through social events and gatherings.
Michael Collins, Duty Operations Manager for the East of Lincolnshire said: “Colleagues at Louth station have embraced the station move and are working and training effectively together. This collaboration strengthens the working relationships between the two services and enables them to work efficiently at the scene of an incident, which ultimately benefits the patient and saves lives.
“I am very proud of my team; it’s great they are receiving recognition for their actions.”
Clinical Support Mentor Di Moncaster, Paramedics Gemma Loveday , Brett Forman and Annabelle Riggall and Technician Vicky Butler are representing the station and collecting their award at an awards evening held by Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue at The Dower House Hotel in Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire.
