Spreading the news far and wide: update from CEO

Chief Executive Dr Anthony Marsh

We update our performance action improvement plan every week and I am pleased that we have now delivered 34% of the actions. You can keep track of progress on our website. Some of our recent achievements have included; removing all use of rapid response cars from private ambulance services; establishing a ‘blue light’ forum to work better with our emergency services colleagues; and a group of our emergency medical technicians have started their pathway to becoming a paramedic at the University of Northampton.

We continue to work on getting more positive stories about the Trust into the local media and the Eastern Daily Press wrote about our student paramedic course in Norwich last week, which was also covered by BBC Look East the week before. ITV covered the news on our recent patient survey results and our allergy awareness takeover week has been covered by the Hertfordshire Mercury.  I have also been interviewed by the Southend Echo this week. I know how important it is to you for the good news about the Trust to be spread far and wide so I am particularly pleased with how this objective is progressing.

I also wanted to say well done to the staff who took part in Exercise Huddle at the Galleria in Hertfordshire on Sunday night, which you can read about in a separate article. As we gear up for another bank holiday weekend, the importance of planning and being prepared is key to providing a good service to our patients. For everyone who is working over the weekend, stay safe and well and thank you as ever for your dedication and high standard of care for patients.
