Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance is flying high after being named Service of the Year at a national awards ceremony.
The Health Business Awards recognised the charity's work for setting up an innovative post-graduation education programme for all its paramedics.
The programme has drawn together health professionals from across Dorset and Somerset to deliver the training and support required.
Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance Chief Executive Officer Bill Sivewright told Wessex FM; "We are constantly striving to look for new and innovative ways in which we can enhance the service for the benefit of our patients and we are extremely proud to have received this award."
"The focus for our nomination was the post graduate education programme which we established for our paramedics and shows the value we place on their continuous development."
"This award recognizes the contribution made by our crew, staff, trustees and volunteers to develop and deliver our life-saving service. It also shows the part played by the general public who support us so generously and we say a big thank you to them."
The Health Business Awards promotes examples of excellence and best practice in hospitals, trusts, clinical commissioning groups and other organisations that work inside and alongside the NHS and the ceremony was held at the Grange Hotel in London.
