United Voice is commissioning two high-level, independent studies into two of the most critical issues for Ambulance Officers – a potential Work Value case and the effects of PTSD.
We are asking working Ambulance Officers – one paramedic, one PTO and one Communications Officer – to join OIC and UV official Kroy Day to form a coordinating Reference Group.
The high-level independent academics to be engaged by United Voice will report to this Reference Group. The Reference Group will oversee the studies and will advise United Voice on the most appropriate way to implement and respond to the two studies.
The work of the Reference Group will be independent and its recommendations will be binding on United Voice.
How to nominate:

Please email your EOI to Deb Gillott, Ambulance Lead Organiserdebbie.firstname.lastname@example.org by close of business 10 December, 2014.
