MP CONCERNED WITH AMBULANCE SERVICE STAFF SURVEY RESPONSES

Dr Dan PoulterDr Dan Poulter, Member of Parliament for Central Suffolk and North Ipswich, has expressed his concern at the results of an NHS staff survey conducted for the East of England Ambulance Service, which shows that the trust is performing worse in a number of areas when compared with other ambulance trusts.

When broken down by occupational groups within the trust, the survey also reveals marked differences in responses between managers and frontline paramedics.
