New health trust chief

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - NEWS -

The East of Eng­land Am­bu­lance Ser­vice has ap­pointed a new in­terim CEO. Dorothy Ho­sein takes over from Robert Mor­ton, who quit the post in Septem­ber, af­ter a CQC re­port said the East of Eng­land Am­bu­lance Ser­vice Trust (EEAST) needed im­prove­ment. The am­bu­lance ser­vice, which cov­ers Cam­bridgeshire, Bed­ford­shire, Es­sex, Hert­ford­shire, Nor­folk and Suf­folk, was in­spected in March. Dorothy started in her role at the be­gin­ning of the month and a spokesman for the trust said she will con­tinue in the post ‘un­til a sub­stan­tive CEO can be ap­pointed.’

The Trust’s Chair Sarah Boul­ton said: “We’re re­ally pleased we have been able to se­cure Dorothy un­til we’re able to find a per­ma­nent CEO for EEAST.

“Her wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence at part­ner trusts in our re­gion and out­side makes her a fan­tas­tic choice for EEAST as we work through the chal­lenges that win­ter will bring, but also con­tinue with the progress we’re all mak­ing in im­proved and com­pas­sion­ate care for pa­tients.

“I’d like to thank ev­ery­one who has sup­ported Robert through­out his three-year ten­ure, a pe­riod of EEAST’s life that has seen a fo­cus on ex­cel­lence in pa­tient care, in­no­va­tion through part­ner­ships, se­cur­ing mil­lions of pounds of in­vest­ment into EEAST, and much more. With Dorothy, the united Board-level team will fur­ther strengthen our ser­vice and help EEAST re­main fo­cused on our pa­tients and the care we pro­vide for them.”
