The East of England has some of the worst ambulance response times in the country, especially in rural areas like large parts of Suffolk Coastal.

I have been leading the campaign to improve response times and get a better deal for patients. After much hard work the service has undergone a lot of positive change over the last few years and long ambulance delays are becoming increasingly rare. I will continue to press the case to make sure the service continues to improve.

New Ambulance Service Chief Executive to Address MPs

The new Chief Executive of the Ambulance Service, Dr Anthony Marsh, will have an early opportunity to brief East of England MPswhen he visits Parliament next month.

The regional meeting hosted by Health Minister, Earl Howe, will take place on the 11th February.

Therese who has been vocal in the campaign for a better Ambulance Service said: "Anthony Marsh will have been in place for 6 weeks when we meet in early February so it is an ideal time for him to give us a candid view on the challenges still facing the service".

Therese added: "I have spoken to Dr Marsh on several occasions since his appointment and I look forward to hearing from him in more detail about how performance times can be turned around and the recruitment of more paramedics crucial for a better service in Suffolk".
