Sue becomes EMAS chief

A new Chief Executive has been appointed to lead the East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) until a permanent successor can be found.

Sue Noyes has more than 20 years’ experience in the NHS – most recently as acting Chief Executive at the Leicestershire Partnership NHS Trust. Her interim role at EMAS is expected to last at least nine months while a permanent successor can be found.

She said: “I’m looking forward to getting started at EMAS. I know that all staff in the organisation are committed to serving the people of the East Midlands in the best way possible and I see my role as helping the organisation reach its full potential in this mission.”

Chairman Jon Towler said: “Sue brings with her a proven track record in changing the culture of organisations to get the best out of people. I’m sure that, with mine and the board’s support, she will help EMAS reach and exceed its targets as well as providing an excellent service to the people of the East Midlands.”

Sue will begin her role on Tuesday October 15.
