Ambulance service fails to find new head
2:04pm Friday 20th September 2013 in News
THE ambulance service has failed to find a suitable chief executive.
The troubled East of England Ambulance Service shortlisted five candidates but all were rejected by the trust board.
As a result Andrew Morgan will continue in his role as interim chief executive.
Dr Geoffrey Harris OBE, chairman of the trust, said, “This decision was not a reflection on the quality of the candidates but a reference to the challenging circumstances in which the Trust is now operating.
“I would like to thank Andrew Morgan for the great progress he has instigated since he joined the trust in December and I am delighted that Andrew has agreed to continue.
"He has been responsible for developing our integrated action plan and putting in place the foundations from which we can move forwards, such as redirecting resources to the frontline in order to improve patient services and clinical quality.
The board is now considering its options.
