Bailiff to visit Ambulance Service

13 December 2012

The Bailiff, Sir Michael Birt, and Lady Birt will see how a frontline ambulance works as they make a seasonal visit to Ambulance Headquarters on Friday 14 December to meet staff, and learn more about the work of Health and Social Services.

The Bailiff and Lady Birt will meet with Deputy Anne Pryke, Minister for Health and Social Services, and the management team in the station’s training room, where they'll have the opportunity to ask questions about the Ambulance Service’s work. They will complete their visit with a tour of the station, including the non-emergency control room and the combined control room, which is shared with the Fire Service. 

They will also see a demonstration of a frontline ambulance, and be updated on the work of the Patient Transport Service, which is run by the Ambulance Service.

Hard-working staff

Deputy Anne Pryke said "We are pleased that the Bailiff and Lady Birt will have the opportunity to come and meet our hard working staff from the Ambulance Service, and to find out more about what they do to care for Islanders all year round.

"The Ambulance Station is always open, no matter what time of year it is, for those who need emergency care, and Christmas is no exception. As always, our staff will be working very hard over Christmas, and they appreciate the visit. Jersey can be proud of its Ambulance Service, the services provided, and its dedicated staff."

The Bailiff said "I am delighted that my wife and I will be able to visit the Ambulance Service, especially as those who work in that service will continue to do so over the Christmas and New Year period, when many of us will be enjoying a break from work. I am very much looking forward to meeting staff who provide frontline services and back-room support to the Ambulance Service in dealing with daily emergency call-outs 365 days a year."
