HE HAS dedicated more than four decades to the ambulance service.

And now a colleague wants Kevin Charman’s hard work to be recognised.

Mr Charman has worked as a paramedic for 45 years.

Team leader John Ayling said: ‘Kevin has worked at several different stations and currently works on the neo-natal transfer ambulance, ferrying poorly babies and hospital teams from hospital to hospital.

‘This work often involves finishing late, but I have never heard Kevin object.

‘He is a selfless individual who never complains and takes the workload in his stride.

‘He will always seek to advise and guide junior members of staff and has always proved willing to help out around the ambulance station.

‘Kevin is one of the unsung heroes of the ambulance service who never seeks reward or recognition for his work.

‘I can’t think there are many people that have given as much dedicated service to the NHS as he has.’
