I have worked for West Midlands Ambulance Service for 27 years as a Capital Accountant being a SALS Advisor for the last 10, taking over as SALS lead 3 years ago. My talents for problem solving and critical thinking, empathy and understanding of issues faced by ambulance staff have helped me mould the SALS team to the strong peer support team it is today. Building on experience I have utilised connections to community charities and internal avenues to tackle problems faced by members of staff.
I am proud to have forged connections with our other Ambulance Services, holding a national peer support forum and assisted other services in the creation of their peer support network. I was nominated by numerous other SALS Adviser unbeknown to me, for my passion, caring nature and supporting them and my colleagues across the Trust in their hour of need.
