Eastbourne MP visits staff

Press release - 8 July 2010

Eastbourne MP Stephen Lloyd gained an insight into a modern ambulance service when he visited South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Trust (SECAmb).

Mr Lloyd took time out to visit Eastbourne ambulance station and meet paramedics working in and around the Eastbourne area last Friday (2 July) and was given an idea of the issues facing crews on the front line.

As well as meeting local paramedics, Mr Lloyd was able to take a look inside the emergency ambulances as well as the Patient Transport Service vehicles that operate out of the station and provide pre-booked transport for non-emergency patients with longer term conditions.

SECAmb Paramedic and Clinical Operations Manager for the area, Giles Adams said: “It was good to be able to meet Stephen and discuss the work of frontline staff in his constituency and SECAmb’s vision to improve services across our region.”

Stephen Lloyd said:  “I was delighted to meet Giles and his fellow paramedics and ambulance staff at Eastbourne ambulance station. I was tremendously impressed with what I saw and the work they do. The technological and clinical innovations being developed to improve patient care and the commitment of the frontline staff was just extraordinary.”
