WEST Midlands Ambulance Service (WMAS) has been shortlisted in not one but two categories at this year’s prestigious Health Service Journal HSJ Awards.

The shortlist has been announced and WMAS is the leading ambulance service participating in the award ceremony which will take place in London next month.

For their combined work on the acclaimed mental health response unit in Birmingham, WMAS have been shortlisted in the ‘Enhancing Care by Sharing Data and Information’ category.

The Trust’s Organisational Development team, together with Coventry University, will also be at the award ceremony hoping to be successful in the category of ‘Improving Outcomes through Learning and Development’.

The programme, which was started in the Trust, is now being rolled out across all NHS organisations in the Region.

WMAS will face stern competition with ten other organisations shortlisted, including another ambulance trust and air ambulance provider.

WMAS Chief Executive Anthony Marsh, said: “I am extremely proud that the Trust is to be a finalist in two categories at these national awards.

“I am delighted that we can share success with our partner organisations and further develop these initiatives to ultimately provide the very best healthcare to patients.”
