Statement of Accountability

As accountable officer and chief executive officer of the Trust, I have responsibility for maintaining the performance and standards achieved within our services, and to support an environment of continuous quality improvement. 

This is the 14th quality account produced by the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust, in line with the requirements of the Health and Social Care Act 2012. The quality account contains details mandated by the regulations alongside the measures that the Trust, in association with our NHS and public partners, has decided will best demonstrate the work that has been done to maintain and improve the standard and quality of care we provide to our communities. 

This account sets out the work has been undertaken this year to improve the quality of care to patients; however, there is clearly more work to be done to ensure all patients have a positive experience and the standard of care that we want who use our services. 

As accountable officer, it is also my responsibility to ensure both the quality and accuracy of the data within this quality account and to confirm that it presents a balanced picture of the Trust’s performance. Therefore, to the best of my knowledge the information contained within this quality account for the East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust is a true and accurate record.
