New ambulances are coming!

Blurred ambulance

Christmas may be over, but the Trust has delivered a belated gift in the form of new ambulances across the region.

In January, 20 emergency ambulances will be replaced and another 36 emergency vehicles will enter service in June, taking the fleet to 323 ambulances.

These new vehicles are part of the service’s plan to improve patient care and drive forward the massive vehicle replacement programme, which began nearly two years ago.

It’s meant that ambulance service has replaced 267 ambulances across six counties, and the rigorous programme ensures that no emergency ambulance is older than five years of age.

Paul Henry, Head of Operations Support, said: “I am delighted to see the programme to modernise the fleet continue. Thank you to the fleet team who have worked very hard to get these new vehicles out on the road.

“We will continue a rolling programme of vehicle replacements to ensure the fleet continues to meet operational requirements”.

The new vehicles will be going to: Greenstead, Thurrock, Basildon, Rayleigh, Harlow, Peterborough, Gorleston, Ipswich, Kings Lynn, Saxmundham, Norwich, Sudbury, Welwyn Garden City, Letchworth, Cheshunt, Watford and Kempston.
