Apprentice shortlisted for Asian Apprenticeship Awards 2019

Hear what Ahmar Iqbal had to say about being shortlisted for the Asian Apprenticeship Awards

Mr Ahmar Iqbal, 3rd year Medical Engineering Apprentice at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, has been shortlisted for the Asian Apprenticeship Awards.

I am honoured and thrilled to have been shortlisted for the Asian Apprenticeship Awards 2019. Knowing that the work I do has a direct, positive impact on patient care and their quality of life makes me proud to be a part of the NHS and glad to have chosen the Medical Engineering Apprenticeship at the Leeds Teaching Hospitals. I strive to do the best I can for the NHS, the users of the devices and the patients, who ultimately rely on the devices we maintain, repair, develop and manage. Knowing what I do directly affects and improves patient care is of the utmost highest priority for me. The quality of the apprenticeship in Leeds is amazing and I think unique as it exposes me to every discipline within a large Medical Physics and Engineering department. Every day I learn different things and gain a wide breadth of experience and knowledge. Also, working in many different Clinical Engineering teams and clinical areas constantly improves and builds upon my communication and team working skills. Support from my colleagues and supervisor cannot be faulted. They do the best they can to improve my knowledge and skills and encourage me to achieve the best I can. I am proud to represent the NHS, LTHT and the Medical Physics and Engineering department at the Asian Apprenticeship Awards 2019.
