Big shout out to Ellie Moldrik who is on the frontline for West Midlands Ambulance Service!
Ellie, who studied Health and Social Care, Performing Arts and Music at Cadbury Sixth Form College, works for the Non Emergency Patient Transport Service (NEPTS).
Ellie says: “I play a key role in getting patients who are eligible and need additional medical support on their journey to their hospital appointments, and I also do hospital transfers and take people home from hospital when they are discharged. Some patients may need to be carried up and down stairs, some may be in a wheelchair and others may need a stretcher so it all varies.”
As well as achieving advanced qualifications at Cadbury, Ellie also gained her GCSE Maths. She adds: “Without Health and Social Care and GCSE Maths, I wouldn’t have been able to get the job I do now and I am so grateful for all the support my teachers gave me!
“There’s no denying that Cadbury Sixth Form College was the best two years of my life. I met some of my closest friends there and we’re still just as close nearly five years later! The teachers were incredible.
“I was bullied throughout my whole childhood and when I went to college it all stopped and that is where I grew into the person I am today. I learnt that being bullied wasn’t normal and it felt amazing to actually get on with people.”
Well done Ellie – you’re doing an amazing job!
