Royal reward for North West Ambulance Service boss

THE head of the North West Ambulance Service has received a Queens Ambulance Medal at Buckingham Palace.

Earlier this year Peter Mulcahy was shortlisted for the prestigious medal which is awarded to individuals who have shown exemplary dedication to their role, and demonstrated outstanding ability, merit and conduct to their vocation.

Mr Mulcahy was just one of five people to have been nominated across the whole of the UK and Northern Ireland.

He said: “It was a fantastic experience and one I never dreamed of happening.

“I am so proud that after 34 years’ service I have received such an award – and going to Buckingham Palace was an unexpected bonus.

“I consider it an honour, not only on a personal level, but also for North West Ambulance Service.

“It’s recognition for my profession.

“As well as thanking the wider North West Ambulance Service team, I would also specifically like to thank my teams in Cumbria and Lancashire for their support.”

What ? So being good at your job and dedicated means you now qualify for awards? Surely his wages attract such skill and dedication anyway?

Another example of getting a award for doing your job.
Well Mr Mulcahy Just to let you know If you are reading you got that award off the backs of your workers.
Next thing you will probably get a OBE from other peoples efforts

The guy has completed 34 years service, no doubt along the way sacrificing a huge amount along the way. I would reason that the recognition is fully deserved, congratulations Mr Mulcahy.

The award is not a Royal one,but Political. Its always the Chiefs but never the Idians who gain them.
This man has had sufficient reward for his efforts which is reflected in his pay packet.
Its about time those at the sharp end were rewarded.
