Campaigners hand over ambulance cuts petition
14:38 26 September 2012
Ambulance campaigners have today handed over a petition with 6,500 signatures to the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust.
The North Norfolk Labour Party campaigners handed it over at a board meeting this morning urging them to rethink plans to cut to the ambulance service in north Norfolk.
The Act On Ambulances campaigners travelled from north Norfolk to Cambourne in Cambridgeshire earlier today and presented the petition to Maria Ball, chairman of the trust, and Hayden Newton, the chief executive.
Maria Ball said they would study comments on the petition because they were “interested to hear what the public thinks”.
Hayden Newton added that he would continue talks with campaigners at their planned meeting in Norwich tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon.
People are still be encouraged to sign the petition online at actonambulances.co.uk.
