Local Labour Party call for urgent meeting over ambulance cuts in north Norfolk
Local campaigners have called for an urgent meeting with an ambulance chief after their petition against cuts hit 2,500 signatures at the weekend.
On the back of a reduction in fleet across the county the North Norfolk Labour Party started the Act On Ambulances petition and are calling for an urgent meeting with the chief executive of the East of England Ambulance Service Trust (EEAST), Hayden Newton.
North Walsham is set to lose its only ambulance vehicle to be replaced by a rapid response vehicle (rrv) and Cromer is set to lose 136 hours of its ambulance to be replaced by 52 hours from an rrv.
The changes come into effect as a result of government cuts of �50m over the next five years.
The meeting would be to discuss the public feeling.
