Jeremy Quin Meets the Chairman and CEO of the South East Coast Ambulance Service

It was a pleasure to meet the Chairman of the South East Cost Ambulance Service, David Astley and the new CEO Philip Astle at their Crawley Operations HQ.

The service has been transformed in recent years and is still very much on an upward trajectory.

The service naturally focuses on the clinical needs of patients- prioritising those who need the most immediate attention. Whilst category 1 or 2 patients are receiving support in line with national peers the service is very aware of the need to reduce the waiting times for patients in “category 3” who are stable and not in imminent danger but nonetheless need speedy assistance.
