Linlithgow lad Andrew Gunn of The Edinburgh Clinic has been crowned Apprentice of the Year in the Skills for Health awards
Twenty-year-old Andrew Gunn from Linlithgow has been named Apprentice of the Year at the Skills for Health Our Health Heroes Awards ceremony.
Gunn, who is a business support executive at The Edinburgh Clinic, was one of only three Scots shortlisted for the award and triumphed over 167 entrants throughout the UK for the prize which was awarded at a ceremony in London last week.
He was nominated by his colleagues for his eagerness to learn and develop new skills, commitment to delivering exceptional customer service and the key role he has played in developing the clinic’s digital channels.
After being nominated by his colleagues, the category shortlist was made up of fifty percent of public vote with Andrew winning the Gold award.
Gunn said: “I’m really honoured to have won Apprentice of the Year, I honestly didn’t expect it. I love my job so it is great to be acknowledged for delivering a high standard of work, especially against such fantastic nominees. I joined The Edinburgh Clinic when I was just 17 and the team have helped me to grow into the person that I am today, I am really looking forward to continuing my career with them.”
Alasdair Muir, Clinic Manager, said: “Andrew’s award is well deserved and the entire team is very proud of him. He is an asset to his colleagues here at The Edinburgh Clinic and it has been a pleasure watching him develop into a vibrant and conscientious young man.
The ceremony was hosted by Loose Woman panellist Linda Robson and featured a panel of representatives from Skills for Health and the National Skills Academy for Health.
