People’s Choice Award Winner: Alan McMillan
Taking home the prestigious People's Choice Award was Alan McMillan, a paramedic with a career spanning back to the establishment of the Scottish Ambulance Service in 1992. Alan's journey, from an ambulance care assistant in 1985 to a lead ambulance man in 1990, culminated in his role as a paramedic when the profession was introduced in Scotland two years later. In addition to his frontline duties, Alan served as an instructor and an Advanced Life Support Instructor, assuming the role of Paramedic Team Leader.
Reflecting on his nomination, Alan stated, "I'm surprised to be nominated for an award as there are thousands of us going about doing this job every day. It's always nice when people say thank you."
Despite his retirement later this year, Alan plans to continue contributing part-time as a paramedic.
