AMBULANCE bosses are keen to hear people’s views on plans to convert to a foundation trust.
The East Midlands Ambulance Service has applied to become an NHS Foundation Trust and has launched a consultation on how it should operate if the application is successful.
If the service becomes a foundation trust the people and communities the it works with would have far more influence on how things are run.
Director of strategy and transformation, David Farrelly, said: “We consulted previously in 2009 and have refined our vision, values, strategic aims and objectives since that time. So we have updated our consultation, which is region wide.
”As part of our public consultation, we want to hear the views of the people we serve and there are various ways that people can get involved.
“The full and summary consultation documents feature reply slips and our website has an online facility to let us have your views.”
The service will also hold meetings across the area to get as many views as possible. To comment on the consultation, visit www.emas.nhs.uk/ft
