Isle of Man Ambulance Paramedic Students Achieve Top Marks 29 November 2005

    The Department of Health and Social Security is delighted to announce that two trainee Paramedics have consistently achieved the highest marks in their class and successfully completed a course held during September and October of this year. Two members of the Island’s Ambulance Service, Miss Lisa Kennish and Mr David Scambler, attended the Southern Ambulance Training College in Chippenham, Wiltshire, for pre-clinical training to become Paramedics.

    During the certificate presentation held on 4th November 2005. Lisa was also awarded the Student Highest Achievement Award.

    The Minister for Health and Social Security, Steve Rodan, MHK, said, “When you consider that the Training Colleges are attended by students from ambulance services throughout the British Isles, it is especially rewarding to know that our staff, coming from probably the smallest Ambulance Service, have come out top. I wish them well for the future and feel sure that they will both be valuable team members for our Service, delivering a high standard of pre-hospital care in their new roles as Ambulance Paramedics”.

    Chief Ambulance Officer, Steve Sieling, who attended the certificate presentation, said, “This is a very proud moment for the Service. The pass marks and awards received are a clear indication of how both Lisa and David had been fully committed to their pre-course studies before attending the course.” He also praised the Service’s in-house training team, who were involved in both the selection process, and assisting with the pre-course preparation.

    Lisa and David are now completing their training in the Island by working alongside other healthcare professionals and Consultants within Noble’s Hospital.
