The “Exceptional Administrator” award was presented at the Ambulance Leadership Forum (ALF), a national ambulance sector event organised by the Association of Ambulance Chief Executives (AACE), which was held at Celtic Manor, South Wales, between 02-03 October 2023.
Daren Mochrie, NWAS Chief Executive and AACE Chair, said: “Jenny contributes to a million minor things that add up to colleagues feeling supported and better connected to each other. From diarising meetings, keeping track of actions, supporting procurement asks, making conference and travel arrangements to helping monitor training, appraisals, monthly salary and leave returns to planning health and well-being challenges and organising directorate away days, she does it all with a smile.
“She has given 25 years of service to the trust and has a positive impact on everyone she meets. They feel valued and that their needs have been met and things move smoothly; the epitome of an exceptional administrator.”
Anna Parry, Managing Director of AACE said: “The AACE outstanding service awards give ambulance trusts the opportunity to pay tribute to one member of staff from each of our seventeen member services who have demonstrated exceptional commitment to their work during the past year.
Whether they are front line clinicians, control centres operatives, volunteers or working in support teams, this year’s recipients have really done themselves, their patients and their colleagues proud, with each person highly deserving of this recognition by their peers.”
