North West Ambulance Service NHS Trust achieves healthy workplace status

The North West Ambulance Service based in Bolton (Headquarters), with sites based across the North West ranging from Carlisle to Crewe, has been commended for demonstrating its commitment to the health and wellbeing of its employees by receiving a Simplyhealth Healthy Workplace award.

Provided by healthcare provider Simplyhealth, the Healthy Workplace awards recognise the contribution that UK organisations, in both the private and public sector, make to the welfare of employees.
