GMB call on the EEAS Trust for an urgent meeting to discuss members concerns and come up with a plan to move forward in resolving these pressures for staff and the public.
Gavin Davies, GMB Senior Organiser for NHS and Ambulance Services said:
“GMB are concerned that staff morale has hit rock bottom in the EEAS Trust and that this will have a negative impact with a real chance that the ambulance service will start to lose front line staff.
“The ambulance service staff has already seen an extreme increase in pressure put on them by negative media coverage regarding organisational change.
“The GMB are now calling for an urgent meeting with the EEAS Trust to discuss members concerns and to look at a way forward that will be beneficial for the public and the hardworking staff who deliver essential medical care to the community.”
