The Ambulance Staff Charity (TASC) has identified a number of staff accessing their service are disclosing experiences of domestic violence or abuse, adverse childhood experiences and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). 

TASC would like to understand these issues and the coping mechanisms used, from the perspectives of ambulance staff, so that they and the NHS can offer the most appropriate services. 

EEAST staff are being invited to take part in the anonymous online study survey. It is entirely voluntary and should only take around 30 minutes to complete (you can start and stop the survey and go back to it at a later time). 

Access to the survey is via
