YORKSHIRE Ambulance Service NHS Trust (YAS) have been celebrating the excellent work done by staff on social media.

This week was Experience of Care Week (April 23 - 27), where patients were given the opportunity to thank staff and volunteers for the care they have provided.

Throughout the week, Yorkshire Ambulance have been posting stories and compliments on Facebook and Twitter, recognising the work that individuals and departments have completed and received feedback for.

The Patient Relations Team receives and processes many compliments for staff across the Trust, including A&E Operations, the non-emergency Patient Transport Service and NHS 111 urgent care service.

Karen Owens, Deputy Director of Quality and Nursing at Yorkshire Ambulance Service, said: “We’re extremely proud of our staff and volunteers who all work hard to provide the best possible care for patients every single day. They don’t expect thanks for what they do, but it’s really important to recognise their dedication."
