Learn more about the ambulance service at the EEAST Annual Meeting
EEAST’s Annual Public Meeting will take place on Wednesday 24 July at the Trust’s Headquarters in Melbourn. It is open to the public, staff and volunteers.
The meeting will give people the opportunity to hear about the Trust’s activities and performance over the last year and some of the key improvements that have been made. These include the introduction of new ambulances designed in conjunction with staff, as well as initiatives such as early intervention vehicles, mobile stroke units and mental health triage which are helping to prevent unnecessary hospital admissions.
There will be an opportunity to learn more about EEAST’s services such as our specialist clinicians within our control rooms and the impact they are having.
The Trust will also outline its plans for the future including our focus on recruiting and retaining high quality staff and ensuring that they are supported in delivering great patient care.
Dorothy Hosein, Interim CEO for EEAST, said: “Patients are at the forefront of everything we do. We have made many of the changes necessary to embed quality and improvement so that we improve patient care. We are already seeing the benefits of this although there is further work to do. The Annual Meeting will be an opportunity for the public to come and find out more about what we have achieved and what we have planned for the coming year.”
In addition to reports on performance, accounts and other aspects of the past year for the Trust there will be opportunities for members of the public to ask questions.
Anyone wishing to attend the Annual Meeting or to ask a question of the board should contact: Esther.Kingsmill@eastamb.nhs.uk to reserve a place.
The Annual Meeting takes place at 1.30pm on Wednesday 24 July at our Melbourn Headquarters: Back Lane, Melbourn, Cambridgeshire SG8 6NA.
