The East of England Ambulance Service is to put 15 more ambulances on the road following a series of criticisms over poor response times particularly in rural areas.
The executive team of the Ambulance Trust announced the extra vehicles would be operational from next Monday.
According to the Trust they will be placed at key locations after a review in direct response to patient and staff feedback to identify where more double staffed ambulances might be needed.
The Trust has also announced a recruitment drive for 75 new paramedics and 124 new emergency care assistants.
