South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust (SECAmb) is celebrating success after winning in three categories at the Fleet News Awards.

Nominated in six categories, the Trust came out top in three categories - Fleet of the Year (251 to 1000 vehicles), Green Fleet of the Year and Fleet Manager of the Year where SECAmb’s Justin Wand scooped the top award. It was also Highly Commended in the Safe Fleet and Most Improved Fleet categories.

About 1,500 attended the ceremony in which the SECAmb fleet team, which has been on a modernisation programme in recent years, was directly competing, not with other blue light services, but with commercial

It is the third fleet awards event the Trust has been shortlisted for in the last six months. Last year SECAmb won at the Commercial Fleet Awards the Blue Light & Public Sector Fleet of the Year and was also Highly Commended at the Green Fleet Awards in a competition with 600 other applicants.

SECAmb’s Head of Fleet and Logistics Justin Wand said: “This recognition is a great achievement for the Trust and demonstrates the hard work the team has put in recent years. The Fleet team plays a crucial role in ensuring the service is able to respond reliably and sustainably to our patients. I am immensely proud of all the team whose hard work is delivered day in day out and which contributes directly to patient care. I would also like to add that my personal recognition is only possible because of my own team and wider Trust support.”
