Another director quits at East of England Ambulance Trust

Neil Storey has resigned as the Director of Emergency Operations at the East of England Ambulance Service Credit: East of England Ambulance Service

A sixth director has quit the beleaguered East of England Ambulance Service.

The Director of Emergency Operations Neil Storey has left after 14 years with the ambulance trust.

Mr Storey is the latest director to resign after sustained criticism of the East of England Ambulance Trust by regulators and politicians over slow response times in rural areas and poor leadership.

Five non-executive directors resigned from the Trust in June.

The Trust said he was "taking the opportunity to move onto pastures new whilst a directorate restructure takes place internally."

Chief Executive Andrew Morgan said: “I would like to personally thank Neil for his absolute commitment and dedication to the ambulance service over the last 14 years.”
