Interim CEO appointed for East of England Ambulance Service

Dorothy Hosein (pictured) has joined the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) as its new leader. The new interim CEO started on 1 November and will be in post until a substantive CEO can be appointed.

Sarah Boulton, Chair of EEAST, said, “We’re really pleased we have been able to secure Dorothy until we’re able to find a permanent CEO for EEAST. Her wealth of experience at partner trusts in our region and outside makes her a fantastic choice for EEAST as we work through the challenges that winter will bring, but also continue with the progress we’re all making in improved and compassionate care for patients.

“I’d like to thank everyone who has supported Robert throughout his three-year tenure, a period of EEAST’s life that has seen a focus on excellence in patient care, innovation through partnerships, securing millions of pounds of investment into EEAST, and much more.

“With Dorothy, the united Board-level team will further strengthen our service and help EEAST remain focused on our patients and the care we provide for them.”
