While the seasons change and leaves fall of the trees, MediPro is still busy as ever. Here’s our newsletter for September!
East of England Apprentice Contract
We are pleased to announce that MediPro have been appointed as an education provider for 666 existing apprentices at East of England Ambulance Service. They are currently doing their Level 3 and Level 4 ambulance apprenticeship training.
MediPro will also provide education and training for a further 297 new learners when their apprenticeships begin in due course.
All apprentices will be transferred to MediPro in the next 12 weeks so learning can commence.
Kevin Scorer, Head of Education at MediPro said: ‘MediPro already have a good relationship with EEAST, and have been providing education and training for them for over two years. We have been working with EEAST during the last few weeks to ensure all apprentices can continue their learning and that no learner will be affected negatively by the transition.”
Apprentices nominated for award
Two MediPro apprentices have been nominated for Bristol Ambulance’s Extra Mile Award after helping to save a child.
Despite highly emotional circumstances, Apprentice Emergency Care Assistants (ECAs) Emma Pingstone and Jack Swan both stayed calm and collected during a recent paediatric cardiac arrest.
The Extra Mile Award is Bristol Ambulance’s own internal award for recognising great work by staff.
Ian Paton was working with them that night and put Emma and Jack forward for the award.
“Emma was seamless and always one step ahead of me asking for equipment. Jack, having only recently completing his ECA training, showed courage by delivering quality and effective CPR throughout the resuscitation.
“I genuinely believe had it not been for these two, the job might not have run so smoothly.”
Well done to the nominated students!
We would like give thanks to Jo Casey-Marten and Laura Burdis here in Stockton. The pair attended to an elderly gentleman and were described by the man’s family as being `a credit to [our] team`.
`The care and compassion they gave my father was second to none. Even though their shifts had finished, nothing was rushed, and they were very polite. 100% excellent from start to finish.`
MediPro auditor Graham Dickinson was contacted by the man’s family about Jo and Laura’s great work.
`I know they were ‘just doing your job’, but to impress the family whilst at the end of your shift, showing compassion and good care, is what it is all about.`
As the business continues to grow, we would like to welcome
- Neil Chandler, our new Functional Skills Tutor
- Charlie Ryman, our new Safeguarding and Pastoral Lead.
- Tracey Trainer, who will be assisting Melissa in maintaining our Management Information System, including apprentice compliance.
We hope everyone will make them feel welcome!
We have received some lovely compliments over the past few weeks:
- Claire Gunn & Joanne White for being kind and reassuring to the patient.
- Emily Wilson & Laura Burdis for their quick thinking at a recent job.
- Alison Griffiths & Tony Gray for the care and expertise given to the patient to overcome the stress of the journey.
- Alison Griffiths & Ann Davies for care and reassurance given to the patient.
Fantastic to get this feedback. Well done!
