Further to the final stage in the Trust’s EOC
configuration, which saw Banstead EOC staff move into Crawley last
week, I am keen that we now also start to reflect the East and West
configuration in our operational management structure.

So, ahead of a full restructure likely to take place next year, we
will be moving to the following structure as of 18th
September 2017.

I want to move away from the historical,
county structures and move to a SECAmb East and West model to
ensure a more consistent approach across the Trust.

This requires some re-shaping of the current
operational areas, as below:


SECAmb East

SECAmb West

  • Medway & Dartford
  • Paddock Wood
  • Ashford
  • Thanet
  • Polegate & Hastings
  • Chertsey
  • Guildford
  • Gatwick & Redhill
  • Brighton
  • Tangmere & Worthing


To reflect this change, there will also be
changes in our senior operational management structure, as

The new leaders for these adjusted roles and
portfolios are;

  • Deputy Director & EOC Operational
    Delivery – Sue Skelton
  • 111 Service Delivery & 999 Contact Centre
    Integrated Clinical Advice Service – John O’Sullivan
  • Fleet & Logistics – John Griffiths
  • Regional Operations Delivery SECAmb West –
    Andy Cashman
  • Regional Operations Delivery SECAmb East –
    James Pavey
  • Regional Operations Resilience and Specialist
    Operations – Chris Stamp

I will be discussing his future portfolio with
Rob Mason, Associate Director of Service Transformation, on his
return from leave.

I recognise that we have already been through
a significant period of change during the past few months in terms
of the operational leadership structure but I am optimistic that
these changes will underpin and support the changes we have made to
