I want to complain about this content:

  • With the removal of a much valued Paramedic from our locality who has benifitted the community greatly and reduced the work load on our local hospital, I read with great interest, and concern, the article regarding the proposed addition of a further15 vehicles to the East of England Ambulance Service. "Great" I hear you say! But did anybody read the small print? It would appear that they have no fully qualified staff to man these vehicles, or the ones they already have in service. The Paramedics I have met are a highly qualified members of the Ambulance Service. They are trained up to nearly doctor level in what they can do. Confirming this, a statement put out by the EEAST states that it will be 7 years before they reach what they deem to be the required manning level. They propose to recruit a further 75 Paramedics as well as 124 "emergency care assistants? "Townie" (Sat 16th) is correct in his assumption, these are not "new" ambulances. they are "retired" ambulances just being put back into service....reluctantly..... by management that could not organise a PU in a brewry.
