AMBULANCE SERVICE: Paramedic who grew up in Kings Langley awarded top honour in Queens honour list

A London Ambulance Service paramedic who grew up in Chipperfield and attended Kings Langley Secondary school is the latest recipient of a top award as part of the Queen’s Birthday Honours.

Richard Webb-Stevens, who has been awarded a prestigious Queen’s Ambulance Service Medal for Distinguished Service, has worked for the Service for 23 years and serves in the motorcycle response unit – a team of 30 paramedics who can get to patients quickly in busy and congested areas.

Richard was born with profound hearing loss and became the first deaf paramedic to work for London’s Air Ambulance as a member of the helicopter emergency medical service, responding to major trauma patients.

Richard’s bravery and dedication were demonstrated when he was first on-scene at the Westminster terror attack in 2017. 

Richard said: “I am absolutely humbled to have received this award, especially as HM The Queen marks her Platinum Jubilee year. I am extremely proud to be a paramedic at the London Ambulance Service and it’s a privilege to serve the people of London.”
