THE DEPUTY Chief Executive of West Midlands Ambulance Service, Diane Scott, has received the Queen’s Ambulance Service Medal (QAM) in the New Year’s Honours list.
Diane, who is one of only two in England to receive the prestigious accolade, is also an executive director of the trust’s board, is responsible for the
corporate and clinical directorates and is a Health and Care Professions Council registered paramedic.
She said: “I am immensely proud and honoured to receive this award.
“It is a great privilege and the QAM represents the pinnacle of my ambulance career.
“I have been proud to work for, and with, many good people at all levels throughout the ambulance service and the NHS, including many skilled and compassionate colleagues who provide excellent care on a daily basis to patients and the public.
“Whilst I have been fortunate to receive the award, it would not have happened without the hard work and support of my colleagues from within the ambulance service to whom I am extremely grateful.”
Diane’s career spans more than 30 years and began at Hampshire Ambulance Service in 1985.
