Public invited to learn more about their local ambulance service

05 September 2019

AMM logoMembers of the public are invited to learn more about their local ambulance service by attending South East Coast Ambulance Service’s (SECAmb’s) Annual Members Meeting.

The meeting takes place on Friday 20 September 2019 at East Sussex National Resort in Uckfield, East Sussex. Those attending will also have the opportunity to learn life-saving resuscitation skills, view some of the Trust’s newest ambulances and discover how they can get more involved in working or volunteering with SECAmb.

New SECAmb Chief Executive, Philip Astle, who was appointed to the role earlier this year and formally took up his position this week, (2 September), will outline the Trust’s plans for further improvement following its ‘Good’ CQC rating in August.

There will be a large exhibition of health and ambulance service information stands, some of our latest 999 vehicles on display outside the venue and a display from our Hazardous Area Response Team. Attendees will also be encouraged to take part in an interactive session on what happens when you call 999.

The exhibition and vehicle display will open from 1.15pm with the AMM running from 2.30pm-4.30pm.

The Trust’s Council of Governors meeting, which the public are also welcome to attend will take place before the AMM at the same venue from 10am-1pm.

SECAmb Chief Executive Philip Astle said: “I’m looking forward to attending my first SECAmb Annual Members Meeting and meeting and speaking with everyone including staff, volunteers, governors and members of the public.

“It will be a really interesting afternoon and I’d urge people to come along and find out what we are doing to further improve patient care across our region.”
