About Us

The East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) provides 24 hour, 365 days a year accident and emergency services to those in need of emergency medical treatment and transport in the east of England (Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire). We provide non-emergency patient transport services for patients needing non-emergency transport to and from hospital, treatment centres and other similar facilities and who can't travel unaided because of their medical condition or frailty. Within the east of England, we deliver the patient transport services in Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, north, south and west Essex. The Trust has a Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) which provides NHS paramedic care to any persons within a hazardous environment that would otherwise be beyond the reach of NHS care. This includes the provision of NHS care within the inner cordons or hot zones of incidents. Within EEAST we have 98 paramedics split between our two HART bases in Essex and Cambridgeshire. Within the Trust we also have an Emergency Clinical Advice and Triage (ECAT) Centre which is manned by experienced telephone triage clinicians, to effectively manage patients without the need to send a physical response (hear and treat) to assess. Our resources and teams include more than 4,000 staff and more than 1,500 volunteers spread over more than 130 sites including three ambulance operations centres (AOCs) located in Bedford, Chelmsford and Norwich.

Outstanding care, exceptional people, every hour of everyday #WeAreEEAST Our vision is underpinned by four goals: Be an exceptional place to work, volunteer and learn Provide outstanding quality of care and performance Be excellent collaborators and innovators as system partners Be an environmentally and financially stable organisation.

Working for Us

You're thinking about working for the ambulance service, but wondering what sets us apart. You get to work in one of the most diverse areas of the country; the bustling capital city is on our doorstep and the bracing North Sea coast envelops our shores to the east. We've got historical cathedral towns and cities, brand new communities, rural broadlands and some of the busiest arteries of road and rail networks, including the M25, A14, M1, M11 and A12, and railway lines from London Liverpool Street out to Cambridge, Norwich, Peterborough, Colchester and Southend. Wherever you go in the east of England there is always something to see and do; but if travelling around the UK and beyond is a must for you as well, the Luton, Stansted, Norwich and Southend airports couldn't make it more easier to stay in touch with loved ones or send you on a deserved holiday or short break.
