Medals for Penicuik lifesavers


PENICUIK volunteers providing support to ambulance teams have been congratulated for their lifesaving contributions.

The medals were presented by Bryan Finlay, the community resuscitation development officer for the Scottish Ambulance Service (south-east division), and Shirley Rogers, the deputy director for health, workforce and performance with the Scottish Government, during a recent ceremony at the Craigiebield House Hotel in Penicuik.
