UNISON West Midlands Ambulance statement…
Following the announcement by West Midlands Ambulance Service regarding the proposed need to make compulsory redundancies, Chanel Camelleri-Willis, UNISON West Midland Regional Organiser said:
“UNISON was shocked to learn of the proposed need to make compulsory redundancies at West Midlands Ambulance Service NHS Trust. The Trust prides itself on being one of the best performing Ambulance Trusts in the country, so the news that the Trust needs to take such drastic cost saving steps was unexpected. Particularly in light of the fact that other Ambulance Trusts around the country are not in such a stable position as the West Midlands, and yet they are not resorting to take such action.
We are currently in consultation with the employer and are working very closely with them to try and negate the need for any job losses.
We have been informed that no ‘frontline’ staff are at risk. However we have made clear to the employer that every member of staff at the Trust is contributing towards the excellent patient care that they are proud to deliver. Any job losses, from whatever function, will impact on patients that are dependent on the excellent services provided by West Midlands Ambulance Trust.”
