Tuesday, 08 April, 2014

The head of the region’s ambulance service has spoken of his pride after he received the Queen’s Ambulance Medal (QAM) on Friday April 4.

Dr Anthony Marsh, who has been Chief Executive at the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) since January was presented with the award by the Prince of Wales at a ceremony at Buckingham Palace.

On receiving the award, Dr Marsh said: “I’m honoured to have received this prestigious award; however I couldn’t have done so without the hard work and dedication of my ambulance service colleagues.

“I’m extremely proud to have been part of the service for 27 years now, and I look forward to continuing to work to improve the service that we offer to patients in the east of England.”

The medal is awarded to recognise distinguished service within the ambulance service, and the news came just a week after Dr Marsh was named as one of the top 50 Chief Executives in the NHS.
