The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) will begin the delivery of 110 new Skoda Scout response cars on the road from July 25. This follows an investment of approximately £14m in new emergency ambulances and £2.3m in its response car fleet.

The new fleet of ambulances and rapid response vehicles (RRVs) being instated across the region as part of a new vehicle replacement programme. EEAST will have 145 A&E ambulances and 110 rapid response cars between now and the end of June in 2014.

Associate Director of Operations Support, Paul Henry told Mix 96:

"We are moving as quickly as possible to ensure these vehicles are on the road in a timely manner.

Our fleet team are currently completing the procurement process and we anticipate that 50 of the new ambulances will be in service before Christmas and a further 47 coming into service during March 2014. The remaining 48 ambulances are expected to come into service between May and June 2014."

The fleet team will work closely with operational staff representatives to refresh and review the ambulance’s design and specification to ensure it fully meets patient and staff requirements.
