THE new ambulance service, covering six counties in the East of England, has named Dr Chris Carney as its chief executive.
The Government announced the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust would be formed on July 1 covering Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk, serving more than five million people. At about 7,500 square miles it will be the largest in the country.
Dr Carney, 54, has been chief executive of the East Anglian Ambulance NHS Trust (EAAT) for six years. He was brought in to help turn around the EAAT when it ran into difficulties.
He qualified at the Royal Free Hospital, London, working in general practice, accident and emergency medicine and pre-hospital care until the mid-1990s.
He became operations and medical director of Staffordshire Ambulance NHS Trust in 1994, and chief executive of Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire Ambulance and Paramedic Service NHS Trust in 1997, before moving to the EAAT.
