The IAA was pleased to support the 10th National Ambulance Memorial Service, held on 7th September at the National Memorial Arboretum. The service is a remembrance event that honours the memory of all those who have served in the NHS and independent ambulance services of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Guernsey, Jersey, the Isle of Man and Gibraltar.
The first part of the service was held indoors, with prayers, hymns and readings. The service then moved to the memorial garden for the Roll of Honour and laying of the wreaths.
Our Non-Executive Director, Andy Ware, read the Roll of Honour for the independent sector, pictured below (photo credit: TASC):
IAA Executive Chairman, Alan Howson, laid a wreath on behalf of the independent ambulance sector (pictured below). Justine Vaughan from EMED Group also laid a wreath on behalf of their staff.
We would like to thank The Ambulance Services Charity for continuing to run such a significant event which recognises the contribution made by those in the ambulance community who are no longer with us. It is a privilege to support the National Ambulance Memorial Service. For more details of the event, please visit the TASC website.
