Bishop's Stortford patients to give their prescription for a better ambulance service
People are being invited to give their views on the East of England Ambulance Trust's (EEAST) draft corporate strategy.
It sets out priorities for the next five years "for providing safe, high-quality patient care" and delivering the NHS Long Term Plan to ensure "ambulance services are at the heart of the urgent and emergency care system".
The draft strategy aims to ensure that EEAST:
- works with the broader healthcare system to look at ways in which patients can be treated by skilled paramedics at home or in a more appropriate setting outside of hospital.
- implements the recommendations from Lord Carter's report on operational productivity and performance in ambulance trusts, to offer the most clinically and operationally effective response.
- continues to work on eliminating hospital handover delays.
- targets capital investment at fleet upgrades and improving the environment for staff.
A final strategy document will be produced by January 2020. Views can be submitted to StrategyFeedback@eastamb.nhs.uk by November 30.
