WEST Midlands Ambulance Service Trust’s medical director has been honoured with a prestigious award from the Royal College of Emergency Medicine (RCEM) during a ceremony in Westminster.

Dr Alison Walker was one of only four recipients given medals by RCEM President Dr Katherine Henderson for her outstanding work over the last 17 years, but in particular during the pandemic.

Dr Walker was awarded the medal for outstanding contribution to RCEM, following the vital link and support she provided between emergency medicine and the ambulance services.

The citation which was read out said: “Alison Walker has been a vital link between emergency medicine and ambulance services for many many years.




This support has been particularly important during the pandemic and has resulted in a much stronger relationship and partnership between those organisations.”

“I am clearly very honoured to receive the medal. I have been able to work with many people within the ambulance and emergency medicine sectors over the years and together we have been able to make some very important changes that are helping patients,” Dr Walker said.


“As well as my work with West Midlands Ambulance Service, I work as an emergency department consultant myself and there is so much crossover between the two sectors that it is vital that we work together, so it is nice that all the hard work that so many have put into this field is being recognised.”

RCEM vice president Dr Adrian Boyle, said: “Alison has always had a cool head during several pandemic related crises. Her calm and collaborative approach, combined with complete integrity is an inspiration to us all.”
