Henry pushes Minister for East of England ambulance trust restructure

Henry raised the East of England ambulance trust recovery plan in Parliament on Wednesday and pushed for a restructuring of the service. He asked Dr Daniel Poulter MP, Under-Secretary of State for Health, what plans he had to meet with the acting Chief Executive of the Trust as “in spite of the efforts and professionalism of front-line staff, the organisation has been badly led and has lurched from crisis to crisis”. Henry commented: “Given the problems the ambulance service has been facing, and given the crisis in management, I do believe that the time has come for Ministers to look urgently at breaking up the regional service into two or three smaller units. This will enable it to reconnect with the communities that it serves. I am very pleased that, in reply, the Minister seemed to respond sympathetically. I will continue to push hard on this important matter.”
