New Chief Executive starts

We welcome our new Chief Executive Helen Ray today, who joins us from Northumbria Healthcare, where she has been the Chief Operating Officer.

Helen said: "I am very proud to be joining the NEAS team today. I am keen to actively support the staff to make sure we have the right services in place to allow them to focus on the fantastic care that they provide to our patients and I will be working hard to make sure we continue to go from strength to strength

Improving the chances of surviving a cardiac arrest in the North East

Improving the chances of survival for cardiac arrest patients is something close to North East Ambulance Service’s heart and their latest initiative is set to do just that.

If you or someone you cared about was having a cardiac arrest and just a short walk away from where you were, there was someone trained in lifesaving skills, would you want them to come and help?

Weardale community paramedic scheme starts

A new community paramedic service has been set up in Weardale.

The service started this month. It covers Crook, Willington and Stanhope and will initially operate for a 12-month trial period.  The new service is in addition to a similar scheme which currently operates in Barnard Castle.
