East: Second Ambulance Board Member Quits

27 June 2013, 12:36

Another board member of the East of England Ambulance Service has announced she's resigning, this time on Twitter.

Margaret Stockham said "@margstockham: The news is out ... Have stepped down from NED of EEAST. Sorry to leave but wish the Board and their great staff all the best for the future"

She's the second Board member to quit in just two days.

Five Non-Executive Directors have been under pressure from the region's MPs to quit, following a Parliamentary debate on Tuesday.

The trust has faced months of criticism following poor response times.

The Ambulance Service say they haven't yet had official confirmation of Margaret Stockham's resignation.
