EMAS chief executive to step down in June


East Midlands Ambulance Service has today announced that its Chief Executive Sue Noyes will be leaving the service in June 2016.

Chairman Pauline Tagg said: “Sue is a valued and respected member of the EMAS team and we will be sorry to see her leave. She has made this decision for personal family reasons, and I know she has not made it lightly.

“I have asked Sue to stay on until June 2016, to continue to lead EMAS through the introduction of phase three of our quality improvement programme Better Patient Care – Driving Forward for 2016.

“Sue and I are committed to ensure that our work continues as normal over the following months.

“We will continue to meet and engage with staff and stakeholders across the East Midlands as we prepare our long term plan to secure EMAS’ future.”

In the coming weeks, Pauline Tagg will be discussing with the EMAS Board and the NHS Trust Development Authority the future leadership arrangements for EMAS.
