Statement from our Chief Executive


Today sees the release of the independent review following the – ‘Listening to Workers: A Speak Up Review of Ambulance Trusts in England’. 
The College of Paramedics was interviewed as part of the stakeholder process and we are pleased to see that the report has now been published.
Tracy Nicholls, Chief Executive of the College of Paramedics said:

“The College welcomes the publication of the independent review and is pleased to see that a number of cultural issues have been addressed within it, acknowledging that work is being undertaken already to improve the culture within the sector.  Our members have raised all of these points with us and I am sure that it will give some reassurance that significant issues have been appropriately highlighted.

However, it’s the implementation and sustained focus of the report’s findings that are of critical importance moving forward and meaningful action must be seen by all stakeholders and staff. Those who are affected by issues raised in this report may well feel disappointed by the inevitable time it will take to address the recommendations and the College will continue to listen to its members and work with the action-holders to ensure focus remains and that the ongoing work continues to foster a respectful and safe workplace culture”.
