Ambulance services consider merge

The ambulance service that covers Northamptonshire is considering a merger with the West Midlands.

The troubled East Midlands Ambulance ServiceĀ is struggling financially and in terms of performance.

EMAS has missed a string of targets and is millions in debt.

They’ve issued this statement to Connect FM:

Prior to the departure of the East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) Chief Executive in March 2016, discussions about the future leadership of the service began between EMAS and NHS Improvement (formerly Trust Development Authority).

“This included talks with West Midlands Ambulance Service about the potential for leadership support from their Chief Executive.

“This option, and others, are still being explored and discussions have not yet come to a conclusion. It would therefore be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.”
