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.

Therese Welcomes Appointment of New Ambulance Service Chief Executive

Therese has today welcomed the appointed of Dr Anthony Marsh as the new Chief Executive of the East of England Ambulance Service.

It was Dr Marsh that conducted the report into the failings of the Trust and made recommendations for changes to improve response times for patients.

Reacting to the news Therese said: "I am delighted that Dr Marsh has been appointed as the new Chief Executive. He has a proven track record of strong leadership and I am pleased he has an opportunity to implement the recommendations that he previously made including the recruitment of many more paramedics. I am sure his appointment will be a key catalyst in turning around performance."

Dr Marsh will be here 4 days a week as he also continues to lead the successful West Midlands Ambulance Service.
