National Ambulance Service at CAMMS

National Ambulance Service at CAMMS

28 April, 2016

The Centre for Advance Manufacturing and Management Systems (CAMMS) runs a suite of highly successful Lean Sigma courses and was delighted recently to support both the National Ambulance Service – South (NAS) Lean Sigma initiative and the Irish Guide Dogs Association with separate, tailored White Belt training programs. The NAS program was delivered to senior staff of the ambulance service on 31st March 2016 at Marymount Hospice. As a consequence several members of the service are now attending the Lean Sigma Yellow Belt with CAMMS.

The attached picture will appear in the NAS Newsletter congratulating all who have attended the training day. The Service will continue to make use of Lean Sigma training to involve staff in developing initiatives to improve the delivery of services in line with overall HSE directives.

The day was led by CAMMS’ Lean Sigma expert Mark Stockil who delivered a high-level introduction to Lean Sigma principles and techniques. CAMMS has worked with several units within the HSE south over the past few years and in the afternoon Ms. Sonia Cotter, Bed Manager – Cork University Hospital and Lean Sigma Black Belt, gave an insight into how Lean Sigma can be implemented in the Health Service environment. The NAS were delighted with the day and will continue to work with CAMMS in the future.

CAMMS runs regular public courses at yellow, green and black belt, in both Cork and Dublin. Courses can be specifically tailored to individual companies, or companies can send individuals into mixed discipline and sectorial classes. More information can be found at www.camms.ie .
