Two new executive directors have joined the region's ambulance service.
East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust has appointed Kevin Brown as director of service delivery and Wayne Bartlett-Syree director of strategy and sustainability.
Mr Brown, who has more than 18 years of experience in the ambulance service, worked as a paramedic for ten years and led the planning and delivery of the ambulance response for one of the London 2012 Olympic Games zones.
Mr Bartlett-Syree, who began his NHS career as a nurse, has worked in urgent and emergency care in the Midlands and held a role with NHS England.
Robert Morton, chief executive of the trust, said: 'I am delighted that we have been able to make these appointments. After joining - and during conversations with colleagues - the lack of stable leadership and direction was an area of concern which was consistently raised by staff in every area.
