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.

The response to the survey follow calls by Dr Poulter for urgent action to be taken by ambulance chiefs to support frontline Suffolk’s paramedics after disappointing figures were recently released, which showed that ambulances arrived late to nearly half of all immediately life-threatening emergencies in parts of rural Suffolk.

When broken down by occupational groups within the trust, the survey also reveals marked differences in responses between managers and frontline paramedics. For example, 64% of managers reported good communication between senior management and staff, whereas only 4% of paramedics responded in the same way.
