Recent court case

Transparent EEAST crest

Yesterday a member of staff pleaded guilty to attempting to meet a child for sex following online grooming. As a trust we condemn these behaviour and actions as they have no place in our ambulance service; a service where we all strive every day to protect and help people. Therefore, given the serious nature of this, they have been dismissed from the service
