Phillip Irlam came to the ICS Workforce Team initially as a volunteer through his work with St Johns Ambulance, whilst also working full time at a retail organisation. He has supported the various vaccination sites both in Staffordshire and in Cheshire.

Philip has quickly become a highly trusted, reliable and knowledgeable member of the ICS People Hub workforce and has realised that helping others in the health and care was wanted to do on a long-term basis; as a consequence, he started to look for a development role in the sector and he now has a role as a Trainee Mental Health and Wellbeing Practitioner in Cheshire. Despite his commitments, Philip still wants to support Staffordshire & Stoke on Trent with the vaccinations being delivered in Autumn 2022 and we of course will welcome him back.

Philip shared his journey and how he has enjoyed this at the ICB Board in July 2022 and can be watched here

Nominated for the 2022 Volunteer to Career category
