Giles Watling, MP for Clacton, has met with Dorothy Hosein, Interim CEO of East of England Ambulance Service.
At the meeting, which took place on 10th May, Giles and Dorothy discussed plans for the ambulance service, upcoming improvements in the service, and opportunities for continued improvement. This follows the pattern of regular contact that Giles has had with EEAS since his election in 2017, including several meetings with the former Chief Executive Robert Morton. Giles has also visited the EEAS call centre in Chelmsford and has spent time out on the ambulances.
After the meeting, Giles said:
“I am keen to have a strong level of engagement with EEAS, so we can ensure the best service for residents in the Clacton constituency. In that, I have been encouraged by recent developments, including the launch of an Early Intervention Vehicles to give people primary care in their home when an ambulance is not required, but often still despatched. Yet, those developments are just the start and we need to do more. That is why meetings like this are so valuable.”
