Information Event: Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust – Chair

Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust – Chair

Information Event – Monday November 20, 2017 (10.30am-2.30pm)

All Nations Centre, Sachville Avenue, Cardiff, CF14 3NY


The Welsh Government is seeking to appoint a new Chair for the Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust, which it will be advertising shortly. The Chair will lead our organisation and the Board through the next phase of our development and the delivery of our vision and strategy.

To complement this recruitment process, we are hosting a dedicated Information Event which prospective candidates are being invited to attend.

The Information Event will give candidates the opportunity to hear from Welsh Government, our Chief Executive, and meet with senior managers as well as front-line staff from a variety of service areas and from across Wales.

Candidates will hear about our vision and strategy, the services we provide, as well as have the chance to talk informally to colleagues in more detail about who we are, our journey to ‘being our best’, and what it’s like to be part of our team.

About Us

The Welsh Ambulance Service was established in 1998, with NHS Direct Wales becoming part of the Trust in April 2007. Our clinically-led organisation provides a service to some three million people across Wales – that’s an area of almost 8,000 square miles, spread across a diverse and challenging urban, coastal and rural landscape.

We employ 3,240 staff throughout Wales (comprising allied health professionals including paramedics, clinical services staff, nursing, administrative and clerical and other staff) and we operate from more than 80 ambulance stations, five Clinical Contact Centres, four office locations and five vehicle workshops. We also have our own national training facility to ensure our staff maintain high levels of performance and receive regular professional development.

Our services are focused in three main areas – unscheduled care, planned non-emergency transport and telephone and online advice:

We are passionate about what we do and we would love to meet you if you are interested in being part of our journey to ‘being our best’.
