Thousands of East of England ambulance staff pledge to improve NHS

The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) pledged positive during its recent landmark NHS Change Day, along with a massive 181,756 people across the country who care about the NHS.

Pledges from both staff and everyone who wanted to support the NHS were welcomed at the event last Wednesday (March 13) which aimed to unite energy, creativity and ideas to make a difference and improve care for patients, their families and their carers.

EEAST interim chief executive, Andrew Morgan joined the innovative movement pledging to improve the working lives of staff.

Other pledges within the ambulance service aimed to ensure the highest standards of care for patients, making workplaces more positive environments, and taking every opportunity to educate members of the public.

The idea came from a conversation with young leaders in the NHS, the next generation who said: ‘If we are the ones who are doing the work, then we are the people who can change the way we do it - for the better.’
