Private ambulance service SSG in administration

Marcus Bailey 2019

You may have heard that the private ambulance service SSG, went into administration this morning. SSG provided both frontline and patient transport services to the Trust.

While the company going into administration presents short-term challenges to our capacity, we are dealing with this under our normal contingency procedures. We are currently working with a number of other service providers to provide extra capacity as soon as possible.

We’re also offering SSG clinical staff the opportunity to come and work with us at EEAST and are contacting them about special recruitment events and incentives, to encourage them to sign up with us.

If you have friends or relatives affected by this, who would like to know more about the opportunities available, please ask them to contact


Marcus Bailey
Acting Chief Operating Officer
