East of England Ambulance Service trust chairwoman steps down as search begins for new chief executive
The chairwoman of the ambulance service for Hertfordshire and Essex is standing down at the end of June.
Sarah Boulton, who was appointed to chair the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) five years ago, said: "It has been a very difficult decision to step aside as we have a really fantastic group of people working at EEAST who are committed to doing their absolute best for our patients.
"However, as the trust is about to begin the process of recruiting a permanent chief executive, I felt it was the right time to hand over to a new chair so that they can be fully involved in that process."
Dorothy Hosein is the interim chief executive of EEAST. An interim chair will be appointed while recruitment for a permanent chief exec takes place.
